Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Siran wafts out of the glass with very pretty scents of red roses, cinnamon stick, chocolate-covered cherries and fragrant earth, giving way to a core of warm cassis and plum preserves, plus a touch of camphor. The medium to full-bodied palate is absolutely laden with rich, juicy black fruits, supported by velvety tannins and plenty freshness, finishing long and perfumed. This very classy, absolutely delicious Margaux tastes great now, but it will reward 3-4 years of cellaring and has the stuffing to continue thereafter for 20+ years.

From an estate in the southern part of Margaux, this wine has just the right mix of rich tannins and taut black-currant flavors to give upfront freshness and potential for further aging. Structured and fruity, it should be drunk from 2027.

Juicy and forward, with expressive cassis, plum reduction and blackberry paste flavors layered together and set against a backdrop of black tea, bay and alder. Long, subtle mineral note leaves a mouthwatering feel at the very end. Lovely. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2035. 8,333 cases made.

This is a solid Siran with blackberries and hints of hazelnuts and chocolate. Full body and chewy tannins that are soft and polished. Shows depth and density.

L'élevage est encore bien présent au nez avec des notes de café qui accompagnent le fruit et le menthol, la bouche est équilibrée, mais la structure tannique encore un peu sèche avec une pointe d'amertume en finale.

Showing a good depth of color, the wine kicks off with flowers, forest floor, espresso, tobacco leaf, spice and a hint of truffle. On the palate the wine is round, lush, full-bodied and carries its multiple-layers of sweet fruits nicely. There is depth, length and energy here. You can enjoy this for at least 20 years or more. The wine blends 45% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, 14% ABV.

Description

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. 


Winemaking

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.
