A well-balanced red from Haut-Medoc
Produced on a 96 hectare in the Haut-Medoc, Chateau Citran is planted on a mixture of sand, clay, limestone and gravel. Their wines are aged in barrels (35% are new), and racked quarterly. 2016 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Merlot (47%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).
Chateau Citran 2016 is a limpid purple, almost ink-like color. The nose has intense aromas of red fruits. In the mouth, the wine is rich, gourmet and beautifully structured. The aromatic complexity and suberbly ripe tannins are a signature of Citran's 2016 vintage.
Parker : 88 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Citran is medium garnet-purple colored with scents of cassis, plums, menthol and earth with touches of pencil lead. The palate is medium-bodied, juicy, firm and grainy, finishing with an herbal lift.
