Overview

In addition to his estate wines, Jean-François operates as a négociant buying fruit from several neighbors to make varietal wines under the Hexagonales label. The Pinot Noir comes from a parcel of Pinot Noir in Saint Pourçain on chalky clay limestone soils. It is fermented and aged in tank preserving the crisp and crunchy red fruit typical of Pinot Noir grown in the Loire Valley.
