Château de Cérons

France, Bordeaux
http://www.chateaudecerons.com/

A property run by Caroline and Xavier Perromat. Caroline worked at Haut Bailly for 15 years alongside Véronique Sanders - they both arrived there in 1998, but now she is working alongside her husband with his family estate. This is one to watch in the Graves, with brilliant white wine to rival many Crus Classés, and red of superb refinement and delicacy of tannin. The 2015 and 2016 vintages show the increased volume on the palate that Caroline would like to bring to the red wines here. There is also a small volume of Cérons, the tiny appellation for sweet wine which is a bit lighter and dryer than most Sauternes.
