Château Siran: 160 years of family history
2019 is a bright year for Siran. One that recalls the acquisition of the property in January 14, 1859 by the ancestor of Edouard Miailhe, Leo Barbier.
He acquired it from Jeanne-Adèle, Countess of Toulouse-Lautrec, the great-grandmother of the painter. Since then, six generations of Miailhe have succeeded each other at the head of the estate, a tradition quite rare in the wine properties of Bordeaux.
This year full of projects is also full of promise: the 2018 vintage of Siran is in line with the great Margaux’s, faithful to its terroir and its appellation. 2018 should compete with the very beautiful 2015 and 2016 products in Margaux.
The year will be marked by putting into practice work initiated several years ago on our environmental responsibilities.
Practicing environmentally responsible viticulture since the 2000s, we go further by using organic products and drastically reducing the use of phytosanitary products, now limited to the sole fight against powdery mildew and downy mildew.
Siran benefits from 88 hectares of an ecosystem favored by an environment of woods, meadows, and ponds, along with an orchard bordering a vineyard of 25 hectares of which we take care to maintain biodiversity.
We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you soon to this property on the rise, to make you taste our wines and to share with you the pleasure that we take in making them.
Wishing you a warm welcome,
