Marks and reviews
Owned by the Miailhe family for more than 160 years, Château Siran is one of the emblematic references of the Margaux appellation. Château Siran already had a reputation for the quality of its wines in the 18th century.
Château Siran 2022 is a Margaux wine from a 25-hectare vineyard, superbly placed on gravel and pebble soils. The vines are 38 years old on average and are planted on hilltops made up of ancient alluvial deposits and covered with fine clayey gravel. The vineyard is managed using integrated viticulture and without chemical herbicides.
This 2022 vintage of Château Siran has a new label, celebrating the 70th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
Winemaking and ageing
Hand-picked in small crates, the grapes are sorted on the vine and on sorting tables in the cellar. Vinification by plot. Fermentation is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats of 60 to 180hl, with pumping over and delestage depending on the batch. Maceration at 26 to 28°C for 8 to 10 days. Malolactic fermentation is done partly in barrels. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (35% new).
Château Siran 2022 is a blend of Merlot (53%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%) and Petit Verdot (11%).
