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.

The 2016 Siran has a well-defined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, rose petal and crushed violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, and quite saline in the mouth. The nicely proportioned finish displays very well-integrated oak. This is a gorgeous, sensual Margaux that should offer 20–30 years of drinking pleasure. Tasted blind at the Southwold tasting.

Wonderfull, if not a classic Margaux. It’s hardly getting any better than this one. I couldn’t wait till 2013 to open it.

Such a beautiful nose: raspberry, violet, cedar and a little vanilla. Red raspberry, tobacco, dried herbs. Med-firm acidity and tannins. It keeps evolving. Would love to taste this again in 5-7 years! #margaux #chateausiran

Rich and textured cherries, dark plums and blackberries possibly makes for the best qpr ever at $28/btl. Needs some time for the wood to integrate. Revisit in 2-3yrs.

Roasted poblano pepper and iron with a hint of mint on the nose. Flavors of Tobacco, leather, black currant and dark cherry. A bit tight but there is some acidity here and the tannins are mild. Needs more bottle rest, but solid potential. I hope I have the patience.
