Viticulture is sustainable at Cérons and the winemaking is precise and measured, producing wines with a fine minerality and balance. The vineyards are on a plateau of gravel over limestone overlooking the river Garonne, perfect terroir for Sémillon in particular. Composed of 90% Sémillon along with 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle, the wine is matured in old oak for 18 months.
With flavours of bitter orange and a herbal, almost savoury character, this is delicately balanced and not too sweet - a classic Cérons with a subtle limey tang on the finish. Aged in oak for 18 months and now very much hitting its stride, this will drink well for another 10 years.
