Tasting Notes

The 2014 Siran has a very refined bouquet with blackberry, briary and light tertiary aromas. There is fine precision here, understated compared to the Sirans of old. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen line of acidity. Linear in style and a little conservative towards the finish, but showing freshness from start to finish. Edouard Miailhe, proprietor of Siran, has really upped the ante here and this 2014 is just a classic Bordeaux claret that should drink well from the start, yet has the substance to suggest it will age with aplomb. 2020 - 2045

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Interim En), March 2017

The red and black fruits and delicately herbal character make this quite a complex wine. For this appellation and given the wine’s youthfulness, the balance of fruit, tannins and alcohol is almost seamless. Drink in 2020 but already gorgeous.

Comfortable dark crimson look. Sweet graphite nose – a bit like really ripe Cabernet Franc. Juicy fruit and with a little bit of drying tannin on the end. Some richness but also a little bit of austerity on the end. 2023 - 2033

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, March 2015

The debut vintage for Hubert de Bouard as the consultant has yielded a soft, approachable, silky, fresh, elegant charmer that will be drinkable early.

Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, February 2017

Siran is in the south of the Margaux appellation just where the gravel outcrops rise above the river. It shows its fine position in this tannic wine. It has all the black-currant fruit buried for the moment under the structure. It is a serious wine that will repay aging. Drink from 2022.
