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 Sauvignon Blanc comes from the best slopes overlooking the river Cher. Jean–François ages the wine for 5 months on its lees to provide it with a rounder structure and richer aromatic profile.
