Château Siran Margaux Crus Bourgeois Exceptionnels 2001

Member Review by Nicki:

Tasted May 2008: This wine has an intense, deep colour with some remaining purple and as yet no signs of degradation. The nose is quite powerful and foursquare for a Margaux, and although lacking in flavour and poise, there is some finesse and a fine perfume of red berries (including cherry and strawberry). On the palate the wine is rather subdued and chunky, but with a lot of extract and grip. The finish is dry, tannic, and with signs of overextraction, hence somewhat out of balance. Still, quite an impressive wine, but not a textbook Margaux. Needs more time; drink from 2010 through 2016.
