Tasted at the vertical held at the Château, the 2011 Château Siran, a blend of 52% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc, has an open, quite generous, earthy and leather-scented bouquet that permeates through the red berry fruit that feels a little smudged against the 2010 Siran. The palate is medium-bodied with a quite fine tannin on the entry and tangible mineralité. This is an appealing Margaux that punches just above my expectations and its persistence on the finish suggests that it has the substance to age. This is worth looking out for. Tasted February 2016.
Located in the southernmost commune of Margaux, Château Siran is one of the Medoc's great historic estates. Belonging to the Maihle family since 1859, Edouard is the 5th generation of the family to lead the estate a tradition quite rare in the wine properties of Bordeaux. He brings with him youthful energy and a team of new, young winemakers dedicated to enhancing and perpetuating the Château's fine reputation.
Practicing environmentally responsible viticulture since the 2000s, the estate goes further by using organic products and drastically reducing the use of phytosanitary products, now limited to the sole fight against powdery mildew and downy mildew. Siran benefits from 88 hectares of an ecosystem favored by an environment of woods, meadows, and ponds, along with an orchard bordering a vineyard of 25 hectares of which they take care to maintain biodiversity.
