In addition to his estate wines, Jean-Francois operates as a negociant buying fruit from several neighbors to make varietal wines under the Hexagonales label. The Sauvingon Blanc comes from the best slopes overlooking the river Cher. Jean-Francois ages the wine for 5 months on its lees to provide it with a rounder structure and richer aromatic profile.
The Vignoble des Bois Vaudons (Vineyards of the Vaudons Woods) has been run by the Merieau Family for three generations. The estate spreads over 35 hectares across the hillsides and on the left bank of the Cher River and benefit for the greater part from a south-southeast orientation. These rich and complex soils allow the production of a range of wines that are varied and rich in colours. Some wines stemming from older or younger vines - certain vines of the Pineau d’Aunis varietal are more than 100 years old.
