Located in the heart of both the vineyard and the village
Château de Cérons is not only a listed historic monument, but a lovely manor house built in the early 17th century situated on a terrace overlooking the Garonne River.
Located in the heart of the village of Cérons in the Graves region, the estate is surrounded by imposing stone walls. The château is located in front of a beautiful 12th century church.
Xavier and Caroline Perromat took over the management of the family estate in 2012. In doing so, they accepted the challenge of producing wines of the highest quality in one of the least-known, but oldest appellations in Bordeaux : Cérons.
Cérons, an exceptional « terroir » at the heart of the Graves region
Cérons appellation, bordering Sauternes, is an enclave in the Graves area. Created in 1936, it is part of the first AOC officially recognized in the Bordeaux region.
This fabulous terroir is characterized by:
- Layers of limestone covered by gravelly sand.
- A microclimate caused by the proximity of the Ciron river which allows the development of Botrytis Cinerea in autumn.
These exceptional natural conditions give Château de Cérons wines their fine mineral touch and great aromatic precision.
Cérons, a Love story
Château de Cérons has always been a wine producing estate.
Xavier and Caroline Perromat took up the family estate Château de Cérons and the 26 hectares of vines surrounding it in 2012.
With their technical team, they are very totally dedicated to their wines being a true representation of the elegant and precise character of Cérons terroir.
The estate belonged to the Marquis de Calvimont in the 18th and early 19th centuries. They welcomed many artists and intellectuals in their majestic drawing rooms.
