Producer : Château Siran
Region : Bordeaux (France), France (France)
Bottle Per Case : 6 x 750 ml
Saint-Jacques is a small property that is essentially a subdivision of Château Siran, making its wine from the fruit of 22 acres of vineyards that lie right on the fringe of Siran's Margaux estate. The soil is heavier than at Siran but it is still one of the best baby Margaux around and a great bargain! Fresh fruits bring attractive spiciness as well as black-currant acidity to this wine. The structure and tannins balance the fruit.

Chateau Siran has a history in the Medoc that dates back to 1428, making it one of the oldest estates in Margaux. The property took its name from Guilheim de Siran, the first owner of the property. Guilheim de Siran was granted the land due to his strong participation with the local church in the nearby commune of Macau.
Since then, Chateau Siran has been owned by several interesting families over the centuries, including the Toulouse Lautrec family. The owners were the grandparents of the famous French painter.
Chateau Siran has been the property of the Miailhe family since 1858, having purchased the estate from the Lautrec family. Chateau Siran has retained their artistic roots. Similar to what Chateau Mouton Rothschild does in Pauillac each year with their labels, from 1980 to 2005.
If you’re visiting Siran, be sure to ask to see the only wine cellar in Bordeaux built to withstand a nuclear explosion, or the failure of the nuclear plant in Blayais. The bomb shelter, which is really just used as a cellar to store their oldest bottles was built during the 1980’s.
