Chateau Siaurac (750ml)
Lalande de Pomerol
Chateau Siaurac is a stunning estate in Lalande de Pomerol dating back to 1850. Today the estate is owned by the Artemis group (owners of Chateau Latour amoung other prestigious global wine estates). Chateau Siaurac boasts almost 37 hectares of vineyards planted to 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. The terroir is gravel and clay. The vineyards have been managed sustainably since the 2008 vintage and as of the 2016 have converted to full organic and biodynamic farming techniques.
Black cherry and spice on the nose. A full-bodied, generously-juicy and very quaffable wine with great structure. It is easy to drink and goes extremely well with red meats, Sunday roasts and the promise of shared and extended pleasures.
Vinification takes place in concrete and stainless steel. Matured for 14 months in both vats and French oak barrels with 25% new oak.
