Made using the free run juice of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. A slightly richer rosé with good purity of fruit that matches well with food at any time of the year.
The proximity of the Cérons appellation to the river Garonne is the reason why such high quality sweet whites are made here. A Semillon based sweet wine that exhibits a nose of ripe apricots and honey with a rich palate and racy, palate cleansing acidity.

It is a wine that will develop interesting flavours with bottle age and will keep for up to 10 years. The wine is of an appealing golden colour, has a fresh aromatic bouquet, is full and fruity with a long aftertaste.
This sparkling wine is made from 100% Semillon grapes and is made using the same methods as Champagne.
Fresh citrus fruit on the nose mingles with baked pear and red apples. The palate has a soft fruity appeal, making it incredibly drinkable as an aperitif.
'A lovely weight and richness. Ripe, rounded tannins with a core of dark, juicy fruit. Signature Gironde food friendly freshness on the palate and a delightful herbaceous note on the nose. A forward-drinking Bordeaux which can be enjoyed now but with sufficient structure to age up to 10 years.' - Jonathan, Retail Manager.
