Château Siran is located in Labarde, the southernmost commune in the Margaux appellation. Siran is undoubtedly one of the Médoc’s great historic estates.
The 88-hectare property has 36 hectares of vines, of which 25 are in the Margaux appellation. The remarkable terroir consists of a plateau with siliceous gravel soil. Planted essentially with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this vineyard nevertheless has an unusually large percentage of Petit Verdot (13%) – a variety that contributes finesse, concentration and, above all, a spicy aftertaste typical of Château Siran. Siran is also one of the rare estates in Bordeaux to have belonged to the same family for over 150 years (the château was acquired in 1859 by the family who presently own it).
Representing the fifth generation, Édouard Miailhe has been at the helm of this unique estate since 2007. Helped by a new, young winemaking team, he is determined to perpetuate and enhance the château’s fine reputation.
Château Siran produces from 120 to 150,000 bottles of their grand vin and second wine, S de Siran, every year.
