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.
In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries the estate belonged to the family of Marquis de Calvimont, members of the Bordeaux parliament originally hailing from Normandy. During this period the Château’s majestic reception rooms played host to many artists and intellectuals..
Roger Expert, one of France’s great early 20th century architects, often stayed in Cérons at his family’s wine estate. Among his many accomplishments, he was responsible for the interior design of the Normandie cruise ship (1932-1935), the Trocadéro fountains in Paris (1936-1937), and five villas in Arcachon and Le Pyla (1924 et 1927). Roger Expert was in charge of renovating the main hall of Château de Cérons. He died in Cérons on 13rd April 1955.
Jean and Suzanne Perromat acquired Château de Cérons in 1958. Benefiting from a family tradition going back generations, they created wines which expressed a strong personality. Their marriage and shared passion for winemaking led, with the help of their son Xavier, to the great success of their vineyards on both banks of the Garonne.
