Owned by the Miailhe family for over 160 years, Chateau Siran is one of the most iconic references of the Margaux appellation. Chateau Siran was already renowned for the quality of its wines in the 18th century.
Located in the Margaux appellation, Chateau Siran reigns over a 25-hectare vineyard with a superb setting in gravel and pebble soils. The vines are planted on outcroppings of old alluvial soils, covered with fine clayey gravel. The vineyard is managed with sustainable viticulture and without chemical herbicides.
Winemaking and aging
Manually harvested in small crates, the grapes are subject to sorting on the vine as well as on sorting tables at the cellar. Plot-by-plot vinification. Fermentation is carried out in thermoregulated stainless steel vats of 60 to 180hL, accompanied by pumping over and rack and return depending on the batch. Maceration at 28-30°C, followed by vatting for 18 to 24 days. Malolactic fermentation is, in part, carried out barrels. Aging lasts for 12 months in French oak barrels (35% new).
