*This price includes all shipping and taxes- due 2024* Both powerful and subtle, the wines of Siran always seek the balance between the softness of the tannins, the intensity of the fruit and a persistent freshness. The nose opens with floral notes, blackberry, cassis and spice from 11% Petit Verdot used in the blend. The wine is medium to full-bodied and refined, showing great freshness and vibrant, pleasant acidity. It shows notes of black fruit, redcurrants, and cherry pie. A wine known to age well, this wine will only improve with time in the cellar.

    "A layered and fine-tannined red with currants and light graphite and stone undertones, Medium body. Fresh, linear finish. Grows on the palate."
  • Jancis Robinson MW

    "60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc. Cask sample. Smudgy rim and mid crimson. Not too dense and quite Margaux in build. Fresh with sufficient ripe fruit for the far-from-excessive acidity. Quite long and subtle with a bone-dry finish. A transparent wine not as intricately woven as the Rauzan-Ségla but a very typical Margaux. A decidedly pretty wine and I know from experience how well Siran can age…"

    "The 2021 Siran unfurls in the glass with notes of blackberries, cassis, warm spices and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, supple and lively, with a pretty core of fruit and powdery tannins that assert themselves on the saline finish, it's a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot."

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux produces some of the most highly sought after and revered wines in the world. Located close to the coast, in the south-west of France the town and is divided by the Gironde River. Wines to the west of the river are referred to as left bank, and are Cabernet dominant. To the East of the river, on the right bank Merlot is the dominant grape variety. Throughout the 57 appellations, over 10,000 wine-making châteaux grow the red grapes; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. These are commonly blended and collectively referred to as clarets. Smaller amounts of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is also grown in Bordeaux.

In 1855, due to the high export demands of Bordeaux wines, Emporer Napoleon III requested an official Bordeaux classification system, based on market costs of the wines at the time. The Chateaux were classified in to five ‘growths’ from first growth to fifth growth and cru Bourgois. Also in 1855 The Sauternes and Barsac classification covered the sweeter wines, with Chateau d’Yquem the only Superior First Growth, followed by Premiers Crus and Deux Deuxièmes Crus.

Margaux

Located on the left bank of the Gironde, situated on the far South in the Médoc, the appellation of Margaux is home to more than twenty one classified growths, more than any other appellation in the region. The overall wines of Margaux are the essence of sophistication accompanied by other unique floral characteristics, such as violet and lilac. The wines from this area encapsulate a sensuous, elegant aroma with hints of ripe plum, cassis and truffle.

Believed to have been harvested first by the Romans as early as 2,000 years ago, Margaux was the first Bordeaux Appellation made into vineyards. This wine region spans across 1,413 hectares of vineyards which ripen around seven to ten days before the rest of the surrounding region, and are protected by forest to the West that provides cover from the cold Atlantic breeze. The soil type of Margaux is the thinnest soil in the Médoc with a high gravel content allowing good drainage which is essential to maintaining the quality of fruit at harvest. The main grapes particular to that area include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

About the brand Chateau Siran

Chteau siran has a history in the medoc that dates back to 1428, making it one of the oldest estates in margaux . The property took its name from saint siran. At one point in time, chateau siran was owned by the touloues lautrec family. The owners were the grandparents of the famous french painter. Chateau siran has been the property of the miailhe family since 1858, having purchased the estate from the lautrec family. Chateau siran has retained their artistic roots. Similar to what chateau mouton rothschild does in pauillac each year with their labels, chateau siran also creates a new label each vintage that features a different artist.

In late 2014, chateau siran finished a complete renovation and modernization of their cellars and wine making facilities along with their museum. The museum, which is worth a trip to see has a stunning collection of wine related objects including several ancient amphores, the oldest of which can be dated all the way back to 300 bc. If you’re visiting chateau siran, be sure to ask to see the only wine cellar in bordeaux built to withstand a nuclear explosion, or the failure of the nuclear plant in blayais. The bomb shelter, which is really just used as a cellar to store their oldest bottles was built during the 1980’s.
