The 2015 vintage of Chateau Siran is the second vintage vinified under the council of Hubert de Bouärd. Harvest starting from September 17th 2015, the 2015 Siran is 55% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Petit Verdot. This Margaux seduces by its clear and frank expression of fleshy black fruits accompanied by balsamic (pine wood) fragrances. The fruit is generous, vibrant and abundant. This attack is scrumptious and is characterised by a lot of fruit revealing spicy tannins with a fine grain, well extracted. The wine has volume and a juicy palate. No doubt that this Siran is one of the greatest vintages and one of the most ample, judged by its solid structure, without hiding the fruit. This wine is a great success.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Siran is a blend of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot picked between 17 September to 12 October. It is raised in 25% new oak plus one-year barrels. It is a little richer and more opulent than its neighbor, the 2015 Dauzac, due to the higher proportion of Merlot. It veers to more red fruit here, wild strawberry and later cassis. The palate is smooth and sensual on the entry, very well defined with a keen thread of acidity. It grips the mouth, implying that there is more Cabernet than there actually is. I like the volume here, and unlike previous vintages that seemed to show some warmth on the finish, here the finish is much more linear and controlled, fanning out gracefully but with power emanating from that Merlot. This is likely to be proprietor Edouard Miailhe's best wine in recent years.
