Jean-Francois Merieau “Les Hexagonales” and Altovinum Evodia


Jean-Francois Merieau
“Les Hexagonales” Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2013

The Merieau family has owned the Vineyards of the Vaudons Woods for three generations. Jean Francoise Merieau took over the estate in 2000, creating a more diverse environment by studying the soils and developing the vineyard as fully organic. The vineyard sits on the left bank of the Cher River, making it ideal climate for Sauvignon Blanc. Merieau’s “Hexagonales” Range is a series of entry level wines that are simple and easy on the wallet including this Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec (or Cot, as they call it in the Loire), Cabernet Franc and a Rose. This Sauvignon Blanc is clean, balanced and has beautiful acidity and white flowers and citrus dominate the nose.

Winemaker Jean Marc Lafage makes a wine with loads of gripping flavors creating a perfectly balanced wine with lots of black fruit, spice and a touch of smoky wood. The wine pairs well with grill meats, stews, and hearty blue cheese.
