A historic monument in the Graves sub-territory called Cérons, built in the early 17th century and owned by the Marquises de Calvimont, this estate welcomed many artists and intellectuals to overlook the Garonne River while they evolved the local culture. While the Château’s foundation is rooted in history, the 26-hectare plateau has its vines rooted in deep gravel soil, with a marine limestone subsoil rich in oceanic fossils of starfish. These serendipitous conditions produce three unique wines expressing a very sophisticated terroir: Red Graves, Dry White Graves, and Cerons – a sweet, white Bordeaux.
Château de Cérons
Cérons (Dessert) 2016
Bright gold. Floral nose of lightly concentrated honey over ripe yellow summer fruits, lovely lemony-honeyed flavours on the palate, richness and sweetness evident with acidity to lift the finish and natural energy to give a beautifully vibrant expression of a classic Bordeaux sweet white. 93 Points Decanter.

$38.99 per bottle(375 ml).
Château de Cérons
Graves Rouge 2016
The colour is a deep, brilliant purple. The nose is lusciously aromatic, dominated by ripe berries and fruits such as blueberry, raspberry, and currant. Subtleties of mineral and white chocolate can be found. The palate is smooth, delicate, and textured with soft tannins. Light toasted notes underline the background, with incredible roundness and a slightly sweet finish – Superb! Ageing in 40% new wood. 89 Points Wine Enthusiast.

$49.99 per bottle.
Château de Cérons
Graves Blanc 2016
An incredibly expressive nose with mature citrus fruit and subtleties of ginger, cloves, and sweet fennel. Juicy peach pit and passion fruit envelope the palate. It's both soft and crisp, finishing with cinnamon and crystallized pineapple. 90 Points Wine Enthusiast.

$49.99 per bottle.
Xavier and Caroline Perromat took over the management of the family estate in 2012. They have been working tirelessly ever since: replanting plots, renovating the cellar, installing gravity-flow concrete vats and opening Château de Cérons to visitors. The whole team is united in the pursuit of ever-greater quality, proudly representing one of Bordeaux’s oldest and yet most underrated appellations, Cérons. Check out our interview with Xavier:
Here is history in the making, and in its brave continuation: Cérons lies just north of Barsac and was awarded its own appellation in 1936, 10 days before Sauternes was similarly recognised. Cérons, with its little port on the Garonne to facilitate trade, was long part of Sauternes until being expelled in 1921 to allow the absorption of the commune of Fargues into Sauternes, perhaps influenced by the Lur-Saluces family of d’Yquem and Filhot, then, as now, owners of Château de Fargues.
Cérons is only one of two châteaus in all of Bordeaux that is also named for the wine commune it resides in... The other is Château Margaux!
