About the producer
An estate in the heart of the vineyard, with a history as colourful as the vines themselves. The château itself is an old vineyard charterhouse built at the beginning of the 18th-century on a terrace overlooking the Garonne. Cerons is one of the smallest and oldest appellations in Bordeaux. At the heart of the village of Cérons, in the Graves region, surrounded by high stone walls, the château faces a magnificent 12th-century church. Xavier and Caroline Perromat took over the family property in 2012 with the intention of raising the quality of wines produced. The estate is made up of 30 hectares of vines planted on a gravel plateau with a subsoil of marine fossils and limestone, which dominate the village. This terroir, with its unique soil and climate, allows for the production of wines of three colours: Graves red, Graves white, and Cérons, a golden wine of Bordeaux.

of determining and setting boundaries of individual vine plots to showcase the

great wines while respecting the environment. Mr. Perromat believes that it’s their
shared vision that allows them to work well as a team. Disbudding, leaf thinning
and green harvests are carried out by hand with meticulous care and attention.
60% Semillon, 30% Sauvignon Blanc & 10% Sauvignon Gris. Chateau Calvimont Graves 2017 is bright, fresh and well-balanced. The dominant Semillon brings richness and tropical fruit flavours along with a smooth texture. The Sauvignon Blanc and Gris bring vivacity, minerality, classic citrus and floral aromas to the blend. A very small portion of this wine is fermented in new oak barrels, this gives the wine more structure and another layer of complexity without robbing it of its fruity and fresh aromas.
