2019

“A superb 2019 vintage, impressive in precision and density.”

Spared of frost, spared of hail, benefiting from a nice flowering in June, this vintage will have still had to face two heat waves, a first at the end of June and a second at the end of July with scorching temperatures, exceeding 40 degrees for a few days, tempered by cool nights. The saving rains in September allowed the grapes to reach good maturity. The wine is a great classic Médoc, rich in colour and complexity, powerful and delicate at the same time, silky and soft as the great Margaux wines know how to be.

Harvest: From September 23 to October 11, 2019

Blend: 47% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.

Best in 20-30 years

2018

“The 2018 vintage, a victory over nature. »

A winter followed by an extremely rainy spring, followed by a hailstorm on July 15 put the harvest at risk. The exceptionally long and hot summer dried out the soil and allowed a beautiful concentration of the grapes, which were picked at perfect maturity during a magnificent autumn. This year, which was full of emotion, produced a great vintage, in line with the 2015 and 2016 vintages.

Harvest: From September 20 to October 13, 2018

2017

“2017, our best vintage in 7 since 1947. »

Ah, the years in 7! It seems that you have to go back to 1947 to have a very good year. As with the fruit trees, the vine, spared of the frosts of April 27th and 28th, was abundant and beautiful, presenting itself at the beginning of September with very beautiful, perfectly homogeneous fruit.

Harvest: From September 14 to October 5, 2017

2016

“A great 2016 vintage, thanks to the miraculous rain in September. »

The rains in September unblocked the water stress triggered by a very dry summer. The mildness of the autumn allowed us to reach optimal ripeness for each of the plots and to carry out an “à la carte” harvest. The wines are colourful, dense, rich and have a beautiful volume in the mouth. They are very aromatic, fruity, with rich and melted tannins and a very nice alcohol-acidity balance.

2015

“The 2015 vintage is exceptional in quantity and quality. »

From the beginning of September until the end of October, the weather was ideal for the ripening of the grapes: sunny during the day and cool at night. We took advantage of this beneficial weather to refine the tannins of the skins. The fruit harvested intact, and the wines expressed an aromatic and tasteful purity. The colour is deep, the balance excellent: a reasonable alcoholic degree with a moderate but present acidity. Finally, smooth, velvety tannins and a dense, fresh finish make 2015 a gourmet vintage!

From the end of August, sun, light and heat settled in permanently, constituting the longest, hottest and driest Indian summer for 100 years! Maturation took place in exceptional conditions, the plots were picked without any particular stress, depending on the full maturity. The Merlot grapes, at their peak at the end of September, express suppleness, aromatic richness and unctuousness.

“A 2013 vintage, born under duress.”

The heavy rainfall of this year will remain in our memories, it is the two summer months of July and August that make the quality of the vintage. The month of September, punctuated by rainy spells, complicates the harvest. However, the Merlot remain fruity with a structure and a sustained colour, the Petit Verdots and Cabernets have ripe tannins and an acidity that gives a good balance to the wine. The work in the vineyard and in the cellar was certainly rewarded.

2011

“One of the most typical vintages of the Bordeaux style. »

In spite of an atypical climate, in particular a strong hydric deficit, t h e extremely early harvest took place in good conditions. A good selection in the winery allowed us to remove the grapes that had withered and been damaged by the heat.

“A late vintage that reveals the authenticity of the terroir.”

Yet another year that had started with difficulties: frost, hail, a summer with little sunshine. Luckily starting in September, a magnificent late season saved the vintage. The harvest began on the last day of the month for the Merlot and around October 12th for the Cabernets. Siran’s southern terroir enabled the harvesting of healthy, ripe grapes and the production of a fruity, powerful and elegant wine with a complexity worthy of the great Siran wines.

2007

“A vintage with a happy ending.”

At the beginning of September, summer finally settled in with hot, dry days and cool nights, allowing us to wait for good ripening conditions for the harvest and compensating for the months of July and August which were cooler and wetter than usual. The considerable efforts made in the vineyard during this gloomy summer were decisive for the health of the harvest. The wine is already pleasurable but also capable of ageing.

2006

“A vintage with a unique character.”

This relatively early harvest can be explained by capricious weather factors with a very hot and dry July followed by a particularly cold August. Fortunately, an ideal month of September enabled us to obtain a good ripening and excellent harvesting conditions. It is these complex years that magnify the early soil of Siran and all the work in the vineyard before the harvest, resulting in a wine with aromas of red fruit, direct and powerful on the palate, still very soft and velvety with good persistence.

“A vintage saved by its precocity. »
