Marks and reviews
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 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.
