Château Siran is one of the very rare Bordeaux wine estates to have belonged to the same family for over 150 years.
Rare and Fine 2019.
Produced from soils made up of a deep layer of gravel, the wines of Siran are typical of the great Margaux growths. Both powerful and delicate, they express the perfect balance between tannin, fruit and acidity. They are long-ageing wines, which over time develop sweetness on the palate, giving a characteristic silky and velvety mouth-feel. The 2014 vintage was made from a blend of 53.5 % Merlot, 38 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5 % Petit Verdot The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. 12 months in oak barrels, 35% new barrels. Château Siran displays charm when young but is also a wine of very long ageing potential. Wine enthusiasts particularly appreciate the complexity of its aromas that it develops over time.
“The 2014 Siran has a very refined bouquet with blackberry, briary and light tertiary aromas. There is fine precision here, understated compared to the Sirans of old. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen line of acidity. Linear in style and a little conservative towards the finish, but showing freshness from start to finish. Edouard Miailhe, proprietor of Siran, has really upped the ante here and this 2014 is just a classic Bordeaux claret that should drink well from the start, yet has the substance to suggest it will age with aplomb.”- 91 pts, Neal Martin, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
