Ever in the shadow of its illustrious neighbours, the small region of Cérons sits just downstream of Barsac and Sauternes. As the name suggests, the major presence here is the Château de Cérons. In keeping with the location, the tradition has been to make sweet wines (and Château de Cérons do, indeed, make a delightful sweetie) but they also make a red and this lovely white wine. Clean and quite zingy, lifted with mouth-watering freshness, some grassy-edged fruit and a neat finish. L&S (Sep 2019)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Tangy and fruity with some lemon and white-pepper character. Medium body and a clean finish. Rating: 88-89 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Apr 2017)

50% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Gris. Acid soils. Rich interesting nose – well balanced and no excess of acid. Some exotic-flowers sensation. Very forward and unusual. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Mar 2017)

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.
