From the Winery:  "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.  

94  James Suckling
“This is a solid Siran with blackberries and hints of hazelnuts and chocolate. Full body and chewy tannins that are soft and polished. Shows depth and density.” (4/2019)

95    Wine Enthusiast
“With more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than previous years, this vintage is structured and full of a ripe black currant flavor. It is spicy and offers fine tannins that will contribute to its aging potential.” (4/2019)

93 James Molesworth for Wine Spectator
“Features a plush edge, with warm plum and cassis notes, ample velvety tannins and a long, mesquite- and tea-infused finish that has admirable depth. A distinctive style and should be a smart buy in the vintage.” (2019)

93  Jane Anson for Decanter
“Another impressive Margaux in this vintage. It’s a big wine with real structure and ageing ability, but it isn’t too tight and is not too obviously pushing its agenda. This is a lovely Siran packed full of tannins, fruit and acidity – the triumvirate. It has excellent mouthfilling blackberry and pepper notes, with a pretty high kick of acidity on the finish, marked by its Petit Verdot.” (3/2019)

93 Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Siran opens with quietly spoken notions of baked blackberries, blackcurrant cordial and bay leaves with hints of scorched earth, tar and tobacco. The full-bodied palate is restrained and elegantly played with subtle earth layers among the black fruit and a solid foundation of ripe, grainy tannins, finishing with earth and mineral nuances.” (4/2019)
