Les Hexagonales Pinot Noir 2011

Les Hexagonales Pinot Noir 2011, Loire Valley

Wine: Jean-François Mérieau Les Hexagonales
Vintage: 2011
Country: France
Region: Touraine, Loire Valley
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Vines: Organic
Production: Medium

Pinot noir is one of my favorite grapes, and this delicious little value from Jean-François Mérieau in the Loire Valley is one of my latest favorite sippers.

Les Hexagonales Pinot Noir 2011 is a bright, easy drinking pinot with cherry fruit and alluring minerality. No oak allows the purity of the grape and the chalky soils it was grown in to show through and start a conversation. Oh, itsn't that lovely and interesting. Let's finish the bottle and open another. Try it with light meats, roasted or braised.

Fortunately, there are importers like Jon-David Headrick bringing small-production wines made with organically grown fruit, minimal intervention, and soul, to save us. Thank you, JD Selections.
