On September 14 of the year 1428 Guilhem de Siran took a feudal oath in the church of Macau to the Abbot of Sainte-Croix de Bordeaux, who was responsible for that parish. At the end of the XVII century, the property already produces wine which would enjoy a good reputation from the XVIII century; the Miailhe family moved to Bordeaux as wine brokers under a royal concession.
On January 14 of the year 1859, their ancestor Léo Barbier bought the estate for 100,000 francs from the Count and the Countess of Toulouse-Lautrec, the great grandparents of the famous painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. From then on, the descendants would all follow the respect of the family traditions.
In the year 2007, the 7th generation of the family, or Edouard Miailhe, is in charge of the estate. Château Siran thus becomes one of the rare Bordeaux estates to have belonged to the same family for more than 150 years.
Produced on a soil composed of deep gravel, the wines of Siran are typical of the classified growth located in the Appellation of Margaux. Both powerful and fine, they always look for the perfect balance between tannins, fruit and acidity. Long-keeping wine, time will bring this sweetness to the palate which often refers to silk and velvet. Coming from a subtle blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, Château Siran generally favors finesse, femininity, silky instead of the pure potency and virility of certain Médoc wines. The high percentage of Petit Verdot, which can reach a solid 15% of the final blend, brings a spicy finish that reinforces the uniqueness of Château Siran's wines. Château Siran is both charming in his youth, and a long-guard wine. It will surprise the amateurs by the complexity of the aromas that develop over time.
