Grand Enclos du Château de CÉrons
Grand Enclos du Château de Cérons is located in Graves, the oldest appellation of Bordeaux, where it is estimated that the first vineyards were planted more than two thousand years ago. Bordeaux Graves vines are protected from the elements by pine forests on one side and cooled by the Garonne river on the other. The "grave" stones of the region absorb the heat of the sun during the day and cool off at night. The unique nature of these stones help the vines ripen steadily and produce an early harvest. The Graves region is known for its white blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes and red blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals. Chateau Lamouroux is the second label of this winery and these wines are produced from the youngest vines, making them more ready to drink.
