From its origins as a seigneurie of the Marquis de Donnissan and a 13th-century fortress, the property remained with the Donnissan family for six hundred years until 1832 when it was acquired by the Clauzel family. By 1945 the estate was derelict and viticulture at a steep decline, when it was bought by the Miailhe who restored and rebuilt the vineyards and facilities. After a period of decades which reestablished the estate's reputation, it was sold in 1986 to Japanese Société Touko Haus of the holdings company Fujimoto. In 1997 the property came to Groupe Taillan, led by Jacques Merlaut, who own several properties in the region, including Château Ferrière, Château Gruaud-Larose, Château Chasse-Spleen and Château Haut-Bages-Liberal. Château Citran is managed by Céline Villars.[2] Production From an estate of 410 hectares, the vineyard area in two segments amounts to 90 hectares, with the grape varieties of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot. France, Bordeaux, Haut-Médoc Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc 13% Alcohol 92 points James Suckling A firm and silky wine with integrated tannins and cool, fresh fruit. Medium body. Tangy and tense finish. A blend of 49 percent Merlot, 43 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and eight percent Cabernet Franc. Drink in 2022. 90 points Jeb Dunnuck The ruby/purple-hued 2016 Château Citran is an outstanding Haut-Médoc boasting loads of red and black fruits, notes of underbrush and graphite, medium to full body, and a balanced, elegant texture that’s very much in the style of the vintage. It’s a hidden gem and, I suspect, a great value.
