Saint-Jacques de Siran Grand Vin de Bordeaux
From the rich soils in the estate along the border of the Margaux appellation, grapes are handpicked and sorted, vinification is done in temperature-controlled vats, and wines are aged in barrels for months, to produce Saint Jacques de Siran with its complexity and softness - rich and fruity, the type of wine that will seduce winelovers and even amateurs through its velvety texture.
Appellation: Bordeaux Supérieur

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.
Marries well with a Ravioli in porcini mushrooms starter, main dish of poultry, beef, game, or veal, and the camembert cheese.
