This is quite nice and does not display the usual rustic tannins found in this chateau. The licorice, espresso bean, earth, black cherry and floral nose opens to a medium bodied, soft, round wine with plenty of spicy, ripe berries in the finish.
Saint Jacques de Siran, AOC Bordeaux Supérieur is sourced from plots belonging to the estate located on the border of the Margaux appellation. Over the centuries, the alluvial soils coming from the Garonne River have covered over the gravel to make a soil which is now made up of clay.
This complex terroir produces rich and well-structured wines, made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the proportions of which vary according to the vintages.
As with our Margaux appellation wines, the grapes are picked and sorted by hand. The vinification is done in temperature-controlled vats, and the wines are aged in barrels for ten months.
This wine is best enjoyed within 4 to 5 years of its production.
Its softness and complexity make Saint Jacques de Siran a popular choice among wine lovers.
