Yeah, Grégoire does the exact opposite of what I’m used to seeing others doing and what I do myself. I’ve seen him live several times and sometimes have noticed that the lower octave is underpowered the way he does it — just my personal taste. But there is an advantage to the way Grégoire does it, which is that you can push more air through those low notes without getting a lot of wind noise through the mic, and I’m guessing that’s why he holds the mic near the top, where you don’t tend to push as much air.
