The 2016 Siran is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc picked from 26 September until 20 October. The alcohol level is 13.9% with a pH of 3.61. The nose, for want of a better word, is very charming. No, not powerful nor is it flamboyant, yet the aromas are nicely focused and it has a disarming sense of purity: blackberry, bilberry, and just a very faint hint of licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, good grip in the mouth, and fine purity. This is a strong follow-up to the 2015 Siran and tasting the two side by side, this is one of the very few occasions in the appellation where I think it might surpass it. Edouard Miailhe has radically improved Siran in recent years (see last year's report) and this is certainly one to watch.
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.
