2014 Margaux from Bordeaux.
In 2014, Chateau Siran made the most of a shift in the climatic situation, in favour of a late yet good ripeness of the grapes. The harvest started on September 24th in Siran on the Margaux appellation and beautiful grapes rich in sugar, polyphenol and acidity were picked. The 2014 Siran is 53.5% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8.5% Petit Verdot. This charming wine expresses balsamic hints (exotic wood) blended in a clear and generous black fruit. The vibrant palate seduces by its denser than usual structure, organised around marked but creamy and fine tannins. The wine is fruity, particularly on finish.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château Siran 2014 has perhaps the most sophisticated bouquet that I have encountered at this stage from this upcoming estate. There is real definition and focus here, more precision than recent vintages have shown. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin. There is good acidity, energetic and animated in the mouth with a vivacious finish that has class. This is very promising for the future and it may warrant a higher score in bottle. Hopefully proprietor Edouard Miailhe now has the grand Margaux estate on the right tracks after years of inconsistent performances? This 2014 suggests that is the case.
