Chateau Citran Haut-Medoc 2016
JS92: A firm and silky wine with integrated tannins and cool, fresh fruit. Medium body. Tangy and tense finish. A blend of 49 per cent merlot, 43 per cent cabernet sauvignon and eight per cent cabernet franc. Drink in 2022.
JD90: 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.
