Chateau Citran

The estate is located in the municipality of Avensan in Médoc (Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification according to the old system, which is no longer valid, it was last classified as "Cru Bourgeois Supérieur" in 2003. The estate is one of the oldest estates here. It was owned by the Marquis de Donnissan family until the mid-19th century. As a result, the once large property was reduced to just four hectares of vineyards and came into the possession of the Miailhe family in 1945. The estate was managed by Jean Miailhe until 1980 and expanded or revitalized to its current size. After being handed over to his sister and her wife, it was sold to the Japanese company Fujimoto in 1986. Finally, in 1996 it was owned by the Taillan Group, led by Jacques Merlaut (+2008). Today it is managed by granddaughter Claire Villars-Lurton. The vineyards cover 90 hectares and are planted with the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (58%) and Merlot (42%). They are in two parts in the municipalities of Avensan and Margaux divided up. The long-lived red wine is aged for 12 months in 40% new barriques. The second wine is called "Moulins de Citran".
