Chateau Citran is one of the oldest properties in the Medoc. In 1996, the Merlaut family took over the reins of the estate. This property produces elegant Haut-Medoc wines that combine tradition and modernity.
35-year-old vines cover nearly 100 hectares of vineyard. These vines are planted in a mosaic of gravel-sandy soils with limestone and clay-limestone soils.
Vinification and aging
The vinification is carried out in thermoregulated vats (stainless steel, oak and cement). Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels (33% new oak), as is the aging with quarterly racking.
The Chateau Citran 2020 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (15%).
The wine displays a deep purple-red color.
Fresh and fruity, the nose combines notes of small red fruits (strawberry, morello cherry) and blackcurrant.
With a straight-forward attack, the structured palate reveals good length, fruity aromas and delicious concentration.
