The identity of the SIRAN vineyard
37 plots make up the identity of the Siran vineyard. The oldest parcel dates back to 1920. On terroirs sloping towards the Gironde and facing east-west, Merlot slightly dominates the grape varieties (46%), followed by Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Petit Verdot (9%) and Cabernet Franc (1%) with an average age of 32 years.
This specificity comes from the unique suitability grape varieties and the soils, the climate and the grape varieties, but also from a fairly high percentage of Petit Verdot, which ripens well on the Siran terroir.
The Siran vineyard benefits from what is known as an “early terroir”; its gravelly-sandy soil warms up very quickly, similar to that in Pomerol, with an early vegetative cycle and therefore always one of the first flowering/veraison in the Médoc.
The teams work each vintage in such a way to reveal the complexity of Siran’s terroir. The vineyard is spread over three appellations and includes 2 hectares in Haut-Médoc and 11 hectares in Bordeaux Supérieur, in addition to 25 hectares in Margaux.
