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.
The estate is planted with the following white grape varieties: Sauvignon Blanc (40%), Sémillon (45%),
Sauvignon Gris (10%) and Muscadelle (5%).
Dry white wines: Sauvignon (50%), Sémillon (40%).
Red wines: Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (45%).
