Château Citran

The winery is located in the municipality of Avensan im Médoc (Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification according to the old system that was no longer valid, it was last classified in 2003 as "Cru Bourgeois Supérieur". The estate is one of the oldest mansions. Until the middle of the 19th century it was owned by the noble family Marquis de Donnissan. As a result, the once-large property reduced to only four hectares of vineyards and came in 1945 in the possession of the family Miailhe. Until 1980, the estate was managed by Jean Miailhe and expanded or revitalized to its current size. After being handed over to his sister and her wife, it was sold in 1986 to the Japanese company Fujimoto. Finally, in 1996, it was owned by the Taillan Group under the direction of Jacques Merlaut (+2008). Today, it is headed 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 oak barrels. The second wine is called "Moulins de Citran".
