France - Bordeaux - Graves
Bordeaux, one of the most renowned wine regions in the world, and this wine comes from the left bank of the Garonne river and in the Graves AOC, just south-east of the city of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is the grape that dominants Clarets produced from the left bank and you see that is echoed in the wine makeup.
2014 was a great year for Bordeaux left bank wines. Lovely to drink now as this is quite friut forward or put in the rack as this will keep for a good few years!
Located in Cérons, one of the oldest but least well known villages in Graves, the Chateau de Cérons has a 26ha estate where owners Xavier and Caroline Perromat produce this fantastic wine.
The grapes that produce this wine are hand-harvested to make sure they are in top condition as well as ensuring only the best grapes are selected at optimal maturity.
These grapes are then blended and aged for twelve months in French oak, 20% of that is new oak, chosen by the winemaker to give the perfect balance and the right amount of oak characteristic for this wine.
This wine will benefit from decanting which will allow the air to mix with the wine and for it to really come to life - quite simply it will taste better! Try decanting or at least opening it an hour before you'd like to drink it.
This wine goes brilliantly with grilled meat or equally as good with hard cheeses.
