A rising star in the Médoc
Château Siran, a vineyard with 25 hectares in a single block in the Margaux appellation, has been managed since 2007 by Édouard Miailhe. He represents the 6th generation of the same family since 1859, which has turned Siran into a rising star in the Médoc.
A very thoughtful viticulture.
In 2008, Édouard Miailhe concentrated his efforts on the vineyard and launched a major replanting programme. Work that he carried out with his vineyard manager Jean-Luc Chevalier. The vineyard is cultivated in sustainable agriculture with experimentation in organic farming on several plots since 2018. Each plot is worked like a garden, plot by plot, according to the requirements of the terroir: tillage, grassing, green work…
The use of inputs is limited to the strict minimum, with a preference for organic farming products or techniques.
A constant search for quality
Each year, improvements made to the vineyard, the search for optimal maturity and a serious sorting at harvest time enable the cellar master and oenologist Marjolaine Defrance to vinify grapes of very high quality. Since 2013, Hubert de Boüard has been the estate’s consultant oenologist.
In 2018, six new vats were added to the property’s thermo-regulated stainless-steel vat room to allow even more refined vinification and more complex and precise blending possibilities. In 2019, the malolactic cellar was completely rebuilt.
The value is always there
The Siran wines, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes, are distinguished by their elegance and balance, between complexity and delicacy, aromas of red fruits and spices, softness of tannins and a beautiful length. In short, all the characteristics of a great Margaux wine.
