Duas Quintas Reserva 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine & Spirits Review From Ramos Pinto's two Douro Superior vineyards, one high altitude providing the freshness to the wine, one along the banks of the Coa giving the arid Douro florals that make this wine compelling. There's a wild tone to the succulent raspberry fruit, a scent of violets and schist. The flavors continue to extend with air, lasting with a comfortable balance and elegant feel. This should be reaching its best around ten years from the vintage, and its freshness should carry it for years after that. Wine Spectator Review Rated 93 Intense and alluring, with smoky aromas and loads of rich and ripe flavors of dark plum, black current and dark cherry. This is a full-throttle red that is muscular but balanced. Finished with silky tannins and delicious notes of cream and spice. Drink now through 2008.

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.

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

Essence of blackberry, black cherry and cassis define this deep-flavored red. This has a Portlike aroma and loads of smoke and spice notes, which fold into the rich, intense finish. Drink now through 2008. 400 cases imported. -KM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Douro in Portugal. 2000 Ramos-Pinto Douro Duas Quintas Reserva 750ml
