Located in the heart of Margaux, Château Siran is a small 25 hectare domain owned by the same family for over 150 years. It has a soft, round and elegant palate with aromas of berries, spices and herbs. As most Margaux, it is also fresh and mineral and very classy. A top notch wine under £30!

|What experts say|
|16.5 "Very dark crimson. Meaty and lively. Good refreshment value. Well-balanced sweet ink."|
86 "The 2010 Siran is a soft, round, attractive, straightforward style of wine, with good berry fruit, some roasted herbs and spice, but not the density and richness of the top wines from this stunning vintage. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."
91 "This has a plush feel overall, packed with flavors of cocoa, espresso, bay leaf, roasted mesquite, plum sauce and black currant preserves. The slightly dusty structure is well-embedded in the fruit, offering a tug of earth at the very end and leaving a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2014 through 2025."
|92 "After a low period, Siran has come back in 2010 with this solid, tannic, firm and serious wine. There is plenty of blackberry flavor to flesh out the structure, resulting in a wine for medium-term aging."|
