RATINGS

94James Suckling

Blackberries, mushrooms and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied with a very compact palate that shows creamy and refined tannins that are strong and driven. Some tar and wet earth at the end.

94Wine Enthusiast

...structured and full of a ripe black currant flavor. It is spicy and offers fine tannins...

93Wine Spectator

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.

91-93The Wine Advocate

...opens with quietly spoken notions of baked blackberries, blackcurrant cordial and bay leaves with hints of scorched earth, tar and tobacco. The full-bodied palate is restrained and elegantly played with subtle earth layers among the black fruit and a solid foundation of ripe, grainy tannins, finishing with earth and mineral nuances.

90-92Vinous / IWC

...aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry and veins of blue fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and better weight and body...there is plenty of freshness on the pliant finish.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Sweet vanilla and baked plums on the nose, but retaining some floral typicality. Silky smooth palate with very refined and ripe tannins. The fruit shines through and is ripe without any excess. Some bright acidity cuts through the smokier toasted notes on the palate. Succulent to the finish.

PRODUCER

Château Siran

Château Siran is in the southern part of the Margaux appellation. The 60-acre estate has been owned and operated by the Miailhe family since 1859. Today it is operated by Edouard Miailhe. The estate is a Cru Bourgeois, though Robert M. Parker Jr. has called Château Siran “the equivalent of a fifth growth in its finest vintages.” Vineyards are planted to 43% merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc. About 100,000 bottles are produced annually. The second label is S de Siran, and the estate also makes an AOC Bordeaux Superior called Saint Jacques de Siran. Parker has noted that Siran is “making consistently delicious, fragrant, deeply colored wines that are frequently on a quality level with a Medoc fifth growth.”

REGION

France, Bordeaux, Margaux

Margaux is one of Bordeaux’s most famous appellations and also one of its largest, with about 3,400 acres of vineyards. Located on the Left Bank of the Gironde River, Margaux has the greatest number of classified-growth châteaux (or crus classé) according to the 1855 classification. There are twenty-one crus classé, including the most famous estate, the first growth Château Margaux. The Margaux appellation includes vineyards around the village of Margaux and the villages of Arsac, Cantenac, d’Issan, Labarde and Soussans. Wines from the best Margaux châteaux and vintages are prized for their perfumey fragrance and elegant, silky mouthfeel. Margaux wines are predominately Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
