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

Finely tannic, this is a solid wine, full of dark fruit skins, dry, dense and impressive in structure. It shows every sign of aging potential, from its solid tannins to its tight, red berry fruits and black fig flavors. Wine Enthusiast.

The 2007 Ramos Pinto Vintage Port is a saturated purple/black color with aromas of damp earth pencil lead espresso licorice and blackberry. On the palate it has good but not exceptional volume ample savory fruit enough fine-grained tannin for balance and moderate length. It is a medium-weight offering that will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2027. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
