Jean-Claude Roux
Until 1995 the softly-spoken, silver-haired Jean-Claude Roux was a cereal farmer with land on the plains near Arçay, some 30 kilometres south of the appellation. After buying 5.2 hectares of Sauvignon in the appellation, he became a member of the Cave de Romane and his wines are now vinified at the Maison Blanche cellar in Quincy where he makes decent, honest and authentic Quincy.

Together with his son, the Rouxs have just expanded their interests, from the 2010 vintage, in Châteaumeillant, where they have bought into the vineyards and cellar of Fabien Geoffrenet.
