The Château Citran vineyard covers 100 hectares. The vines are planted on a mosaic of gravelly and sandy soils composed of marl and limestone.
Vinification and ageing
The hand-picked grapes are vinified in traditional thermo-regulated vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out partly in barrels (38% new barrels). The wine is aged in French oak barrels with quarterly rackings.
Château Citran 2015 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (38%) and Cabernet Franc (6%).
The colour is clear, with violet highlights.
The nose blends black fruit fragrances with delicious toasted notes.
The elegant attack is fine and racy. The palate is seduced by this wine’s balance, its length and its power mixed with a fresh and smooth touch. The finish is ample, persistent and aromatic.
