Very attractive, plush and rich red and dark-fruit aromas with beautifully integrated oak and youthful, spicy complexity. The palate has lush, seamless and velvety tannins that are elegant yet powerful and deliver a silky build of ripe dark-berry flavors into a long, seamless finish. Greatest Siran ever! Try from 2023.
Now with more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than in the past, this wine has elegant black-currant fruits and tannins allied to a lift of acidity. Showing the continued improvements at this southern Margaux estate, the wine is joyful and ripe. Drink from 2025. (RV)
A highly attractive vintage for Siran, with a darkly spiced frame coming from a high 9% of Petit Verdot (a grape that did particularly well in 2016), blended with 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, with a pH of 3.61. The estate has a new winemaker this year in Marjolaine DeFrance. There are clear touches of the florality of Margaux and this is an excellent wine, less succulent than 2015 perhaps, but with intensity, staying power and beautifully poised fruit. This is an estate that just keeps getting better and is a name to follow. (JA)
The 2016 Siran has a backward bouquet, quite delineated and broody at first, then opening gradually to reveal blackberry, cedar and graphite scents - almost Pauillac-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very good concentration and purity, and fresh, brine-tinged black fruit toward the sensual finish. Bon vin. (NM)
The 2016 Siran has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of cassis and chocolate-covered cherries with wafts of black soil, licorice and violets. The medium-bodied palate is lively with grainy tannins and a good fruit core. (LPB)
Dark purplish crimson. Lovely classic Margaux scented fruit. Ultra-fine, dry and elegant tannin texture. There’s a slight austerity here but everything is in balance for elegance in the longer term. 17/20 points. (JH)
The frame of sandalwood dust and singed cedar gives this a slightly restrained feel for now, though the core of bitter plum, black cherry and lilac notes is solidly built. The sandalwood edge holds sway on the finish, keeping this slightly austere for now. Cellaring should let this wine's charms emerge fully. Best from 2022 through 2032. (JM, Web Only-2019)
