Chateau Citran 2007

2007 is generally regarded as a tough vintage in Bordeaux, that was over-priced on release.  Prices have since corrected overseas, but in Australia, we seem (as usual?) to have missed this correction judging by my own ad hoc look at retail prices for these new releases.  Chateau Citran, always a good solid producer, in 2007 is a blend of 50% cabernet and 50% merlot.  It had a quite pleasant aroma of blackcurrants, with some woody/cedar notes too.  The palate was similar, with some tannins and not a lot of length, though the wine overall was pleasant and easy to drink.  Would have been great were it $10 cheaper.  83 to 84 points.

Abv: 13%
Price: $35
