This 25 hectare property in Margaux is owned by the Miailhe family who used to own Pichon Lalande and a part of Chateau Palmer. The vines average 30 years of age with some going back to the 1920s. The quality has improved enormously recently and the 2015 was very highly praised (quite rightly) by the critics. The consultant is Hubert de Bouard of Angelus.

The 2019 Siran has a drop dead gorgeous bouquet with pure blackberry and boysenberry fruit. Touches of crushed violet identify it as a Margaux. The oak is neatly folded into the fruit. The palate is very well balanced with succulent tannins, fleshy and sweet yet with depth and grip. Veins of blue fruit appears towards the spicy finish. This Siran boasts one of the longest finishes that I have ever encountered from this estate. Seriously good. 2024 - 2060
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Siran slips easily out of the glass with fragrant notes of violets, blackberry pie, fruitcake, blackcurrant pastilles and dried lavender with hints of kirsch and chocolate mint. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with perfumed black fruit layers, knitted with a solid foundation of firm, fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note. Punching well above its weight, this is a very impressive showing for Siran! 2024 - 2050
Lovely, soft tannins with a juicy and flavorful palate of currants, slightly toasted oak and chocolate. It’s full-bodied and layered with a plush texture and a long, flavorful finish. Warm and rather flamboyant for the vintage. Try in 2025.
A dense, beautifully integrated red with blackberry, blueberry and chocolate character. It’s full-bodied with ripe tannins and a fresh, focused finish. Shows lots of blue fruit and flowers at the end. Siran does it again, after a gorgeous 2018.
The 2019 Siran is a dense, potent wine. Super-ripe red cherry, red plum, rose petal, mint, spice and blood orange infuse the 2019 with notable textural richness. This is an especially unctuous style, and yet Siran offers terrific persistence and plenty of character.
47% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc.
Despite the concentrated colour this is much less concentrated on the palate than the Rauzan-Ségla. But for Siran this is clearly a great vintage. So sinewy and ambitious for a Siran! Great balance and freshness. Likely to be GV. 14%

Deep ruby in colour. Succulent dark cherry and plum fruit show in wonderful purity on the nose. There are accents of vanilla, and a higher-toned violet fragrance too. This follows on the palate, which layers blue and red fruit together in a plump and approachable package. The tannins are ripe, already knitting into the wine's fleshy fruit core. This is a moreish, creamy example that will drink well from an early stage. It retains a sense of place and vintage in a forward profile.
