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.
Château Calvimont is a husband and wife-led team operation run by Xavier Perromat
and his wife Caroline Perromat. Xavier Perromat undertook the painstaking task
of determining and setting boundaries of individual vine plots to showcase the
finesse and quality of this terroir. Xavier, his technical assistant Audrey and his
wine consultant Julien are all committed to durable wine growing that produces
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.
Bright black cherry colour, sensual, soft and caressing nose with a crisp and refreshing red fruit palate.

This wine comes from specific parcels in the Château de Cérons estate. It is light, with a fresh line of black-currant fruits. Solid tannins in the background assure further ageing. Drink from 2022. ROGER VOSS
The 2018 vintage was a real test of patience.
The first 6 months of the year were dominated by incessant rainfall and mild temperatures. The weather then changed radically on the 15th of July, marking the start of a hot summer with periods of drought. The harvest period stretched from late August to late October, with the grapes reaching excellent levels of maturity. This exceptionally long and rain-free harvest period allowed us to fine-tune our picking operations. In the cellar the juices proved to be very consistent, with a beautiful colour. This was an unusual year with extreme conditions, but in the end it turned out to be an excellent vintage.
