Xaviere Hardy has created her own winemaking region, squeezed between Brittany and the Loire Valley in France’s north-east, where she’s making this characterful, bright Pinot Gris that belies its relatively humble origins. An elegant wine that’s as good with food as it is without.

Les Terres Bleues

Xaviere Hardy is a winemaker who willed the creation of her domaine into existence. With no other vines for 60km around, she lobbied local bureaucrats for years to allow her to plant small vineyards of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Grolleau around the tiny village of La Chapelle-Glain in the winemaking no man’s land north of the Loire river. Vines were finally planted in 2013 and are now steadily producing the biodynamically farmed fruit that marks Xaviere’s wines out as some of the most eye-opening we’ve experienced in a long time.
