Silky textures, refined tannins and an elegant, fresh, juicy mouthful of earthy, ripe, sweet dark red fruits with nuances of tobacco, wet earth, cigar wrapper and a background note of licorice are a turn on.

Today, there is no better wine for the money from the Margaux appellation than the 2015 Chateau Siran. The wine was made from blending 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot.

Medium/full-bodied with a nice polish to the sweet, black cherries, plum and cassis, the ripe tannins, silky textures and long finish taste and feel great. This is probably the best vintage yet produced by the southern Margaux. The wine is made from a blend of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot . Some of the credit for this super wine has to go to bringing in Hubert de Bouard as their consultant. 91 – 93 Pts
