Grand Vin Margaux 2014
“Edouard Miailhe, proprietor of Siran, has really upped the ante here and this 2014 is just a classic Bordeaux Claret that should drink well from the start, yet has the substance to suggest it will age with aplomb.” – Wine Advocate
Bordeaux in 2014 was one of those vintages that met with a muted response at En Primeur, but now in bottle has stunned the critics. At Château Siran, it was the year they finished their renovation and the first year that Hubert de Boüard, the co-owner of Angélus in Saint-Émilion, consulted for them. And the quality went through the roof.
Château Siran is not just a great Bordeaux, but it’s also pub quiz heaven. It was once owned by Toulouse Lautrec and has a cellar built in the 1980s that is designed to withstand a nuclear explosion. Hailing from the south of the region, this is always a satisfying Margaux. A blend of mainly Merlot, with Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of Petit Verdot, aged in oak for a year before release. As ever, in 2014 it’s charmingly aromatic, displaying fleshy blackberry, cherry, plum, cassis, leather, spices and something of an English country garden in bloom, replete with herb patch. This is a château on the rise, and this vintage should not be missed.
