Then, he conducts the vinifications and the vineyards at Châteaux Le Gay and la Violette at Pomerol. In May 2012 he joined the team of Peter Kwok at Vignobles K as Technical Director of the 5 properties. 

He is also winemaker at the family-owned property Chateau Haut-Musset in Lalande-de-Pomerol since 2003.
