Run by the Mérieau family for four generations, the Vignoble des Bois Vaudons estate spreads over 35 hectares. Jean-François Mérieau took over the family estate in 2000. Since then, he has committed himself to rediscovering the soils of the Loir-et-cher, working with the soils, plowing, cutting heavily, and harvesting by hand. Jacky, Jean-François's father allowed the development of the fame of the estate. He oversaw the establishment of the estate.

Jean-François studied in Amboise, then in Bordeaux, having some professional training in famous vineyards. Through working the grounds and by cultivating in a reasoned way, he takes care of what was given to him and can thus produce wines of a high quality. 

Lying across the hillsides and on the left bank of the Cher river, the land benefits from the south-southeast orientation. The rich and complex soils allow the production of a range of wines 
Cent visages is made from a Malbec grape that brings a very deep and concentrated garnet colour. This variety is grown in the Bordeaux region where it is blended in the wine from some of the greatest Châteaux. 

The grapes are destemmed then hand sorted on a sorting table before crushing and putting them in a vat. Hand plunging and delestage, followed by a long maceration (between 5 and 6 weeks) with natural yeasts. Maturation in concrete buried tanks with micro-oxidation.
