2017 Château Siran  (Margaux) 91

Cherry blossom, licorice, espresso and ripe plums get the medium bodied wine off to a good start. It's the blend of sweet, red fruits, soft, polished tannins and acidity that create the personality. You'll be able to enjoy this while waiting for the 2015 and 2016 to mature. The wine was made from blending 46% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot. The harvest took place from September 18 to October 5 and he wine reached 13.5% alcohol.

2016 Château Siran  (Margaux) 92

Deep in color the wine pops with oak, licorice, smoke, red fruits and espresso. The wine is medium-bodied, round delivers tobacco, licorice and dark, red pit fruit in the finish. Give this 7-8 years and pop a cork on the best value in the Margaux appellation.

2015 Château Siran  (Margaux) 93

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. Give this about 7 years in the cellar and this should start to really show its character and complexities. 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.

There is no better wine from Margaux for the money than the4 2015. Thus sublime beauty offers silky textures, refined tannins and a sweet, juicy, mouthful of ripe, deep, red fruits, floral notes and a polished, soft, elegant finish. Prices can only go up. So grab it while you can.

There is no better wine for the money coming out of the Margaux appellation than Siran. Character driven, complex, fresh, fruity and with loads of earthy, dark red fruits and violets. Look at the top of my range, as that is where this is headed..

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

2014 Château Siran  (Margaux) 91

The debut vintage for Hubert de Bouard as the consultant has yielded a soft, approachable, silky, fresh, elegant charmer that will be drinkable early.

This is the best wine I’ve tasted from Siran. Medium-bodied, soft, round and open with a core of licorice, blackberry and dark molten chocolate, this is a property to watch, as Hubert de Bouard is now the consultant. 89-91 Pts

2013 Château Siran  (Margaux) 84

From a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, this medium-bodied wine displays rustic tannins and a crisp finish with cranberry and cassis. 83-85 Pts

2012 Château Siran  (Margaux) 87

Medium bodied, bright, red fruits, earth and spicy notes lead to a soft wine that should drink best on the young side.

55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, the red berry and herb-tinged, lean wine is chalky on the finish. 84-86 Pts

Medium bodied, pleasant, straight forward, with a focus on earthy, black fruits, with a rustic, chalky quality to the tannins in the finish.

2009 Château Siran  (Margaux) 88

Looking a few years younger than its actual age, the wine offers red cherry, truffle, tobacco and cedar on the nose. Medium bodied, firm, classic and still fresh, the wine needs more time before it its ready. Give it another 5 years before popping a cork.

This is quite nice and does not display the usual rustic tannins I often find in this chateau. The licorice, espresso bean, earth, black cherry and floral nose opens to a medium bodied, soft, round wine with plenty of spicy, ripe berries in the finish.

2008 Château Siran  (Margaux) 87

Already showing secondary notes of truffle, ash, cigar box, tobacco and currants, on the palate, the wine is medium bodied, soft, with a cherry nuance, but lacking in the depth and complexity found in more recent vintages. You can drink this now, or age it a few more years.

2005 Château Siran  (Margaux) 87

Austere in style, with firm tannins, cassis, cherry and cranberry fruit and an earthy, spicy, tobacco scented nose.

2003 Château Siran  (Margaux) 87

Fully mature, the wine is already on the cusp of the earth, smoke and tobacco side, instead of the fruit-filled side, this is in its prime time drinking window. Medium bodied, soft, and easy on the palate, if you have any remaining bottles, I'd drink them over the next few years.

2000 Château Siran  (Margaux) 90

Nice wine here that is clearly drinking where you want it to be. The nose shows secondary characteristics of tobacco, flowers, dark red fruits and forest floor scents. There is good texture, concentration, length and freshness in the earthy, blackberry filled finish.
