Château Citran Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefdunkle Farbe. Der Geschmack ist vollmundig. Der Wein hat eine angenehme Tanninstruktur und überzeugt durch eine volle Geschmeidigkeit.

Château Citran:
The Citran vineyards are divided into two. One plot is adjacent to the Margaux appellation and is very near to the chateau. The other is close to the town of Avensan, at the heart of the Haut-Medoc appellation. The first is the most spectacular.

The Citran vineyards are divided into two. One plot is adjacent to the Margaux appellation and is very near to the chateau. The other is close to the town of Avensan, at the heart of the Haut-Medoc appellation. The first is the most spectacular. The gravel crest on which it lies slopes gently down towards the chateau and its wooded grounds. Cabernet Sauvignon covers 58% of the 90 hectares, and Merlot only 42%. In a never ending race towards quality, the work is never finished, and even now the gravel crests are being deforested to plant Cabernet Sauvignon vine plants. This will increase the Cabernet Sauvignon content in the composition of this Grand Vin. This decision is the living proof of the new owners' professionalism. Before even buying the property, they had noticed a high zone covered with acacia trees, trees which only grow on deep and highly drained land such as the Medoc gravel. Land which is perfect for vines. Over the next few years, these new plots will replace older plots of lower quality whose production will be totally stopped. Read less

Tasted May 2008: The epitome of a modern Haut-Médoc. Deep garnet colour but not opaque, beginning to mature. Bouquet with ripe red and black berry fruit, a touch of ripe Merlot fragrance (clove and spice), but above all extremely elegant and smooth. In the mouth silky-textured, fairly rich, easy, a feminine wine. Unobtrusive tannin and vanilla in the aftertaste. A technically perfect 2004 and very good value, but don't search for character. Drink now through 2011.
