The balance and aromatic richness of a Haut-Médoc red wine

The estate

Château Citran is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc. In 1996, the Merlaut family took over the running of this estate, which produces elegant Haut-Médoc wines.

The vineyard

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.

The blend

Château Citran 2015 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (38%) and Cabernet Franc (6%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Citran is medium garnet-purple in color with savory notes of chargrill and sautéed herbs over warm plums and blackberries notions. Medium-bodied with firm, chewy tannins, it's a little tart in the mouth with a grippy finish.
