1975 Château Citran Gary Thomas March 1, 2011 Tasting Notes 1 Comment This wine was tasted for Open That Bottle Night 2011 on Palate Press: the online wine magazine. One always wonders if a wine of this age has anything left to impart. This does. Good high neck fill on the bottle. Lively dark brick color but still nice hues. Leathery, snuff-box, and dried black cherries on the nose unfold in the nose. In the glass and on the palate, whispers of spice like turmeric and black cloves. The fruit is like an aging dowager of faded glory but still a residue of charm left. Finishes surprisingly long. Of some historic interest as it was made before the original family sold the property to a Japanese concern in 1987. In keeping with the wine itself, should be drunk while watching the fading twilight of the day.
