Chateau Citran is one of the older Bordeaux properties in the Medoc with a history that goes all the way back to the 13th century. At the time, like most of the properties built in those days, its primary purpose was as a fortress. The modern era for Chateau Citran begins with the purchase of the estate by the Miailhe family in 1945, who remain well known as negociants and chateau owners in Bordeaux. In turn, the Miailhe family sold the property in 1987 to a Japanese holding company, Fujimoto. Today, Chateau Citran is owned by two well-established families from Bordeaux, the Merlaut family, who heads the Taillan group, which counts Chateau Gruard Larose as part of their holdings and the Villars family, that own numerous properties including Chateau Chasse Spleen, Chateau Haut Bages Liberal and Chateau Ferriere as well as other estates.

A portion of the Chateau Citran vineyards is in fact located not far from the Margaux estate of Chateau Ferriere. Chateau Citran is a large, Left Bank estate, with 90 hectares of vines on a terroir of sand, gravel, chalk and clay. The vineyard is planted to 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot. On average, the vines are 25 years of age. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 6,600 vines per hectare. The goal of Chateau Citran is to eventually increase the portion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyards, with new plantings that will take the place of some of the estates forested areas.

The wine of Chateau Citran is vinified in large, temperature controlled, stainless steel vats. Malolatic fermentation takes place in tank. The wine is aged in 40% new, French oak for between 12 and 14 months. On average, 25,000 cases of Chateau Citran are produced each year. There is a second wine, Moulins de Citran.
