Chateau Citran is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc region. In 1996, the Merlaut family took over the running of this estate, renowned for its elegant Haut-Medoc wines.
Chateau Citran’s vineyard spreads across almost 96 hectares. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on a tapestry of gravelly-sandy soils composed of asteriated limestone and clay-limestone soils.
