Chateau Citran 2000, Magnum Size


91 points Wine Spectator

“Beautiful aromas of currants, berries and flowers. Full-bodied, with a wonderfully integrated palate of ripe fruit and fine tannins. Long finish. Best Citran in years. (JS)  (3/2003)”

Jancis Robinson

“Excellent colour. Still some toasty oak on the nose. Refreshing even if not the biggest and boldest of this range. Needs a bit of time for that oak to integrate but this should make an appetising bottle”.  (10/2003)

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“A voluminous, rich, structured effort with plenty of toasty new oak, deep black currants, and licorice interwoven with body and density, this serious wine should have a lot of upside potential. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2015. (RP)  (4/2003)”

Château Citran owns over 100 hectares of vineyards in the Haut-Médoc appellation. They are planted with premium grape varieties that make the most of its fine terroir: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.


Wine Tasting Notes: At first, A fresh and fruity spicy red wine with intense ruby color with purple nuances and low transparency. Then, the nose shows intense, fresh and pleasant aromas that start with notes of black cherry, plum and violet followed by aromas of blueberry, blackberry and raspberry. The mouth corresponds well with the nose, a slightly tannic attack but balanced by the alcohol, a good body and intense flavors. Overall, the finish is persistent with flavors of black cherry, plum and blackberry.

Food Pairing recommendations: A great friend with some mushroom ( salted tart, tagliatelle or Risotto).

Try it also with some roasted meats, game, Duck. A fantastic pairing with matured cheese such as Epoisses.
