Reviews & Ratings

Average Critic Score
90.2
A firm and silky wine with integrated tannins and cool, fresh fruit. Medium body. Tangy and tense finish. A blend of 49 per cent merlot, 43 per cent cabernet sauvignon and eight per cent cabernet franc. Drink in 2022.
James Suckling
The 2016 Citran has an understated bouquet that demanded some encouragement from the glass, although it eventually revealed nicely detailed black fruit tinged with cedar and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, just the right amount of juiciness with a linear and taut, saline finish. This is a commendable follow-up to the 2015 Citran and it should give 10-15 years of pleasure.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This is should definitely be an En Primeur wine that’s on your list. Citran 2016 is an absolutely lovely wine – and you can enjoy it young! Full of red fruits, the wine is medium- to light-bodied, it graces the palate in a velvety and pleasant style. Drinking window 2019-2023.

Château Citran

Château Citran

Château Citran has a history dating as far back as the 13th century. The estate remained under the Donissan de Cirtan family’s ownership until 1832, when the last heir sold the property. Today, the château is owned by the Merlauts, who are reaping the benefits of previous Japanese proprietors’ restorations. Situated on the edge of the Moulis-en-Médoc appellation, the Citran vineyards stretch over 100-hectares wide, and benefit from the maritime-like Médoc climate due to its vicinity to the Gironde estuary and Bay of Biscay. Idyllically located, the sustainably farmed property is sheltered from the westerly and north-westerly winds by the coastal pine forests. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot plantings evenly share the land. The tranquility of this château is echoed in their Cru Bourgeois classified wines, they are velvety clarets with long-lasting finishes. ...
Haut-Médoc

Haut-Médoc

Despite its name, Haut-Médoc or “High” Médoc, the Haut Médoc is located south of the Médoc AOC area. It is further upriver and as a result is considered “higher” up. Unlike Médoc, which has a very distinct and separate vineyard area, its vineyards lie along the length of the Left Bank and slink around those of the Médoc crus, so one is able to find Châteaux with an Haut-Médoc designate outside of St. Estèphe, Pauillac, St. Julien and Margaux. Due to its extensive location, its soils and micro-climates are notably heterogenous; however, the vines are slightly less better placed than the crus and so will produce wines with less power, finesse and/or complexity. Nonetheless, there are a number of top quality properties as well as Crus Bourgeois, and many give excellent value. Some of its most known include Châteaux Cantemerle, La Lagune, Citran and Bernardotte (owned by Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande). ...
