Caroline Perromat of Le Chateau de Cerons on sweet wines
This show was published 19 November 2018
Caroline Perromat is owner of Le Chateau de Cerons, located in Cerons, a small appellation of 21 hectares, with 10 producers producing sweet wines. The wines are not as sweet as their neighbours, Sauternes, containing around 95g/l residual sugar after fermentation (Sauternes can be 150g/l).
Caroline tells how the region is perfect for producing sweet wines - the Ciron river runs through Cerons, Sauternes and Barsac and creates a micro-climate of misty morning fog combined with warm afternoons and evenings, which help the development of the fungus botrytis, needed for sweet wines.
Chateau de Cerons wines are available in the UK from Berry Bros and Lea & Sandeman.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
