This is a good Château Citran from the 2006 vintage that has entered its window of best drinking. It has some tannic grip and mature black currant characters. The wine dries out a little with air but overall, its length, finish and balance make for pleasant and typical left bank Bordeaux drinking. The cork was in great condition. Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 13%. Price: $50+.
