48% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc
This has a plush feel overall, packed with flavors of cocoa, espresso, bay leaf, roasted mesquite, plum sauce and black currant preserves. The slightly dusty structure is well-embedded in the fruit, offering a tug of earth at the very end and leaving a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2014 through 2025. –James Molesworth (Winespectator)
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.
Made from a subtle blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, Château Siran generally expresses finesse, femininity and silkiness rather than the raw power and virility of some Médoc wines. The high percentage of Petit Verdot, which can be as much as 15% of the final blend in some years, brings a spicy finish which enhances the unique character of the wines of Château Siran.
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.
