Ramos-Pinto Duoro Duas Quintas Red Table Wine Portugal 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The color of this wine is an intense brilliant ruby red. It has floral and fruity aromas that are fine and elegant with fresh fruit such as grape and cherry with a hint of vanilla. The wine has a fresh and aromatic attack. It has good acidity against soft lively tannins. Full-bodied and smooth, it has very fruity taste of cherry and blackberry with a slight vanilla note at the end. The finish is fresh, well balanced and persistent.

When walking in the chateau grounds it is obvious that its history goes further back than the 1855 classification. Citran is actually one of the Medoc's oldest seigneuries. Numerous Marquis de Donnissan, related to the family of France, reigned here for 600 years and only abandoned their chateau in the middle of the 18th century. Since then the chateau has gone through different phases. The various owners and the general financial crisis meant that the surface of the vineyards varied between 90 hectares to less than 4 hectares. The wine's quality reflected these fluctuations. Things got better in 1945 when the Miailhe brothers bought the property. Ten years ago a serious boost in the research for quality was set in motion. An accumulation of hard work and the huge investments initiated by the precedent Japanese owners brought Citran back towards the Haut Medoc elite. This transition was carried through under the leadership of the new and exacting owners. The Merlaut-Villars family is well known in the Medoc. They are true connoisseurs of wine and land. A symbol of this old cru Bourgeois wine's new-found youth is the arrival of young Céline Villars who will from now on represent the chateau. Read less
