An estate in the heart of the vineyard, with a history as colorful 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 colors: 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.
