Marks and reviews
Château Siaurac lies at the edge of the Pomerol plateau, in Néac, in the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation. Three centuries of history stand in the middle of this vineyard in the form of a château on the banks of the Barbane River on the border with Pomerol.
Château Siaurac 2022 is a Lalande-de-Pomerol wine made from a 45.15-hectare vineyard planted on a mosaic of terroirs made up of gravel, deep clay and clayey sands. This exceptional vineyard is divided into 40 plots of land. The property is in the process of being converted to organic farming and is already certified as High Environmental Value 3. The vines are 33 years old on average.
A mild and relatively rainy winter advanced an early budburst on the vines, which were not much affected by the frost at the beginning of April. The warm and dry conditions from May onwards led to rapid and even flowering. The three heat peaks in mid-June were counterbalanced by storms at the end of the month, which limited the development of water stress. The vine resisted this extreme climate with resilience, thanks to its gravelly soil and sufficient water reserves. The harvest took place from 5 to 28 September, depending on the maturity of the plots, revealing ripe, well-balanced grapes with a beautiful tannic richness.
