Château de Cérons is a (Chartreuse) vineyard built in the late seventeenth century on a slope overlooking the Garonne. The château, listed as a historical monument, is situated in the heart of the village of Cérons in the Graves region, surrounded by large stone walls and facing a beautiful church which dates back to the 12th century. Xavier and Caroline Perromat took over the management of the family property in 2012. They challenge themselves to continually raise the quality of their wines.
Château de Cérons AOC Graves blanc 2016 is a white wine which is very typical of the Cérons appellation
The estate is made up of 26 hectares of vines planted on a gravel plateau with a calcareous subsoil, typical of this district.
The nose is complex with aromas of nectarine,
vine flowers, ginger, slightly biscuity. The palate is generous, with citrus notes and it has a beautiful energy marked by a touch of salinity that characterizes the wines of Cérons.
Château de Cérons AOC Graves blanc 2016 is a white wine representative of the Cérons appellation. The Semillon varietal gives it a certain fatness in the mouth that will perfectly match with pan-fried foie gras and muscatel grape. The acidity that Sauvignon grape brings on the other hand, is a reminder of the characteristic of the Graves wines among the Bordeaux whites.
