Château Siran is an important Margaux estate that was once owned by the painter Toulouse-Lautrec`s great-grandmother. Since 1848 Siran has been owned by the Miailhe family and today run by Edouard Miailhe. Siran is located in the far south of the Margaux appellation in the commune of Labarde. Siran has 25 hectares of vineyards which are very well-sited on a high gravel ridge. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (41%), Merlot (46%), Petit Verdot (12%) and Cabernet Franc (1%). The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks and the wine is then aged in small oak barrels (35% new) for 12-15 months. Siran's wines are typically classic and elegant in character, displaying good ripeness of fruit, with hints of vanilla buttressed by smooth and almost seamless tannins. Advised since 2004 by the wine-making consultancy teams of Professor Denis Dubourdieu.
