1989: extremely round and opulent, with a slightly spicy finish. Save this one for foie gras, or serve just on its own at the end of a meal. 

Cérons is produced the same way as those famous sweet wines of Bordeaux from botrytis grapes, only it's in an area just to the northwest (see map below), and tastes a lot like the famous sweet wines of Sauternes.The main difference is that it is much lighter on the palate, with more acidity....and less sweetness!

The Perromat family has been making wine at the Château de Cérons for generations - Jean Perromat was President of the appellation and his wines were served at the Elysée Palace in Paris. Cérons grows on a chalky soil, unlike the more dense clay soil of Sauternes, which gives the wine a light minerality.

Today, we’re digging deep into their cellars to bring you three vintages of Céronsthat span nearly three decades, and offering a sampler pack to discoverCérons from 2007, 1998, and 1989 - a rare privilege to experience the same wine as it evolves over time.
