Dark ruby in color with a reddish/ brick rim.
Nice nose of blueberries, black currants, black cherries, wood, vanilla, chocolates, dark coffee, spices, pencil lead, tobacco and black pepper.
Full-bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with currants, plums, cooked cherries, blueberries, wood, earth, licorice, spices, coffee, cola, pencil lead, peppercorn, leather and herbs.
Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
This 12 year old red Bordeaux is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced and fruit forward, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. I really liked the nose, and kept smelling on it for a while.
This Fifth Growth Bordeaux from the great 2009 vintage, is drinking very nicely all by itself. Will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.
Needed a few hours of airtime, I gave it 3 hours. Delicious once it opens up, so please be patient.

2016 vintage. While this estate has been in the hands of the same family since 1858, it is under the reigns of current owner Eduard Miailhe that Siran is showing its true potential. The vineyards are situated in Labarde, the Southern part of the Margaux appellation, surrounded by Crus Classés Dauzac, Prieuré- Lichine and Giscours. 2016 was the first vintage made by oenologist Marjolaine Defrance, with Hubert de Boüard (Château Angélus) as consultant since 2014. It's a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, aged for 12 months in French barriques (35% new). Obviously it's way too young to show its full potential, but it is a terrific effort, undoubtedly at Cru Classé level. Concentrated black fruit (cassis, cherries, blackberries), violets, licorice and a subtle touch of cedar wood. It displays classic Margaux elegance, complexity, impeccable balance and considerable length. At only 28 euros this is one of the finest values in Margaux that should drink well over the next 20 to 30 years. — 5 months ago
A young Bordeaux, 2016 with very good balance of Cab and Merlot, pairs well with rich dishes and fats, deep berry tones. I would guess it could be cellared for some time. — 5 months ago
After my fabulous experience with Ch Margaux, Ch Palmer & Ch Dauzac 1990s a few months ago (remember the boxing 🥊 match review 😁) I just couldn’t resist buying one of my favourite Margaux’s, Ch Lascombes, when I saw this €108 1990 gem in St Emilion with high level & good cap 👍 In 🇬🇧 retails £85 - right at its peak 😉 Oh & Mr Parker it’s not 86 points 🤣
