Saint Jacques de Siran, Bordeaux Superieur 2016
Concentrated colour and flavour, fruity but with multiple levels of structure, integrated oak flavours and ripe smooth tannins.
Saint Jacques de Siran, AOC Bordeaux Superieur, comes from the chateau’s vineyards right on the Margaux appellation’s border limits. Through the centuries, the river Garonne’s alluvial flow has layered the gravelly soil thereat with deposits of clay.
This complex terroir yields well-structured and rich wines, the blend of which is composed of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot in proportions that vary in accordance with the vintage.
As with Siran’s Margaux appellation wines, the grapes are picked by hand, the harvest sorted out manually and vinification conducted in temperature controlled vats. The wine is then aged in barrels for 10 months.
Best enjoyed within 4 to 5 years, Saint Jacques de Siran charms wine lovers with its smoothness and complexity.
