Château Siran Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Really bright character, with dark berry, tar, light coffee and flowers on the nose and palate. Full and rich, yet balanced and complex. Best ever from here? James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Siran 1500ml

On September 14th 1428, Guilhem de Siran took the feudal oath at the hands of the prior Sainte Croix de Bordeaux in their nearby Macau Church. The property at times bore the name of Saint-Siran in honour of a holy Abbott originating from Burgundy, who after several pilgrimages to Rome came back to Gaulle and settled in Toulouse at the time of the Franc king, Clotaire II. Later, by the end of the 17th century, the estate already produced a wine, which in the 18th century enjoyed a great reputation in the period when the Miailhe family benefited from a Royal concession and occupied the profession of broker. In the 19th century, on 14 January 1859 to be precise, the chateau became the property of the same Miailhe family. Their ancestor, Leo Barbier, bought the estate for 100 000 francs from the Count and Countess of Toulouse-Lautrec, the grandparents of the famous painter of paris night life Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Subsequently, the family’s descendants followed one another in full respect of the family tradition. In 2007, the family’s fifth generation, represented by Edouard Miailhe, become involved in the management of the estate. Chateau Siran is one of the rare Bordeaux chateaux to belong to the same family for nearly 150 years. Read less

Château Siran is located in the village of Labarde, in the southern part of the Margaux appellation, on a table-land of siliceous gravel.The sun exposure of the vines and the fine vineyard soil help to produce a wine that is in keeping with the elegance, which has made Margaux wines world famous. During the summer, prior to harvesting, bunches of unripe grapes are removed and the leaves are thinned out to produce maximum ripeness and concentration in the grapes. They are picked by hand in small crates and sorted first in the vineyard, and later upon arrival in the cellar, to eliminate any fruit that is less than perfect. Fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and malolactic fermentation takes place in the barrels. The wine is then aged in barrels made with Allier forest oak, 40 to 50% of which are renewed each year. When the time comes to blend, only the finest vats of wine are reserved for sale under the château label. Since 2003, the well-known oenologist Denis Dubourdieu provides precious advice in order to make the best possible wine. Each year, château Siran's label commemorates a major event that has occured during the vintage year. Previously owned by the Count Toulouse-Lautrec family, Château Siran has belonged to the William Alain Miailhe family since 1859.

A blend of 42% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot, the Chateau Siran '10 seems to mark a change in style for this Margaux cru that tended to be overblown in recent years. This is far more composed on the nose with pepper black fruits... Neal Martins Wine Journal. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Siran 1500ml
