CHÂTEAU DE CÉRONS
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot|
Sleek dark-berry fruit - soft and succulent cassis - dominates this medium-bodied gently fleshy Graves. Not massive, but a very pretty wine which has a fine-grained elegance. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 L&S (Nov 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2015 Château de Cérons has a focused, well-defined bouquet with blackberry, briary and cranberry aromas neatly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, smooth and plush in the mouth, perhaps needing to show more structure on the finish. But it is cohesive and the silky smooth texture is very sensual. Rating: 90-90 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Apr 2016)
Château de Cérons
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 with 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, refined and very elegant.
