Winery Info/ Brand
Athough its location, its terroir and its reputation largely deserved to be included in the 1855 classification, the Toulouse-Lautrec family, owners of Siran, legitimists and faithful to their family tradition, had declined the invitation to be included in this “Bonapartist classification”. At one time classified Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel alongside the châteaux Phélan-Ségur, Haut-Marbuzet, Chasse-Spleen, Château Siran is now charting its own unique and singular path on the road to excellence.
Region Info/ Origin
The Margaux appellation encompasses the village of Margaux and the neighbouring villages of Arsac, Labarde, Soussans and Cantenac. Being the most southerly of the Médoc's appellations, it has the thinnest soil in the region with the highest proportion of gravel that allows the soil to drain very well. The wine from this area are very susceptible to weather effects during the growing season. Encountering all seasons with adequate irrigation, relatively good rainfall and good amount of sunlight, the crop yields a bountiful harvest year-on-year. The winery takes pride and value that captures the essence that reflects their unique brand.
