About the Winery:
Chateau Siran is an important Margaux estate that was once owned by the painter Toulouse-Lautrec`s great-grandmother. Siran is located in the far south of the Margaux appellation in the commune of Labarde. Siran has 25 hectares of vineyards which are very well-sited on a high gravel ridge. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (41%), Merlot (46%), Petit Verdot (12%) and Cabernet Franc (1%). The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks and the wine is then aged in small oak barrels (35% new) for 12-15 months. Siran's wines are typically classic and elegant in character, displaying good ripeness of fruit, with hints of vanilla buttressed by smooth and almost seamless tannins.Advised since 2004 by the wine-making consultancy teams of Professor Denis Dubourdieu.
