reviews

James Suckling 93-94

"Lots of purple fruit with asphalt and black-olive character. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and a long, linear finish."


Wine Advocate 92-94

"The 2020 Siran was picked from September 16 to October 3 and matured in a prudent 35% new oak. It has a superb bouquet of vibrant black cherries, blueberry and violet scents on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent but firm tannins, a crisp line of acidity and beautifully integrated oak. This is very cohesive and offers impressive salinity on the finish. Best Siran to date? I think so."


Glengarry Review Liz Wheadon

"Deep red with vibrant cassis very expressive. The tannins are super well-formed ripe and gorgeous. A lovely balance to this wine, not overly powerful, just delightful and well structured."


Decanter Jane Anson 93

“This is powerful and juicy with well balanced, opulent berry fruits - easy to fall in love with. This really is one of the few that has tannins that feel well caressed by the fruits, and the slightly higher than average alcohols gives a flattering feel through the mid palate. Nice job from winemaker Marjolaine Defrance and owner Edouard Miahle (who is now president of AOC Margaux, having succeeded Gonzague Lurton). Tasted twice. 1% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. 35% new oak. Hubert de Boüard consultant oenologist. Harvest September 11 to October 3. Drinking Window 2027 – 2044”


Vinous Antonio 91-93

"The 2020 Siran is bold, racy and so expressive. Inky dark fruit, lavender, blueberry jam, spice, new leather, sweet oak and licorice. This sumptuous, racy Margaux possesses terrific depth and pliancy, all in a succulent style that likely won't require more than a few years in bottle. There is plenty to look forward to. Tasted two times."
