Chateau Siaurac 2011, Lalande-de-Pomerol


Grape Varieties: 75 % Merlot, 25 % Cabernet Franc
Tasting Notes: smooth and fruity with spices and black cherry flavors. Matured for 14 months in both vats and French oak barrels with 25% new oak. Black cherry and spice on the nose. A full-bodied, generously-juicy and very quaffable wine with great structure. It is easy to drink and goes extremely well with red meats, Sunday roasts and the promise of shared and extended pleasures.

Critics’ Comments:
100 Top Values of 2014: This Bordeaux red shows the vintage’s briary grip, offering a dark ganache frame to rasperry coulis, plum sauce and fruitcake notes. Drink now through 2018. JAMES MOLESWORTH, WINE SPECTATOR, 89

Blueish purple. Contains 5% of Malbec for the first time and is very perfumed. Nicely put together. Crunchy fruit. Could be good value for this is flattering and intense without being sickly or overoaked. (…) JANCIS ROBINSON, 16/20

5% Malbec this year. Dark, bright colour. A little more depth of fruit than usual and ripe, well-handled tannins. DRINK 2016-2022. DECANTER: 16/20

The Estate

The Chateau Siaurac estate is located on the plateau of Néac, which is a continuation of the famous plateau of Pomerol, and its vineyard is in a single, contiguous plot. It is the largest estate of the appellation and is comprised of 46 hectares of planted vine, a nineteenth-century château and 15 hectares of romantic rolling parkland, home to centuries-old trees, an orangery and eighteenth-century landscaped woods. Chateau Siaurac is one of the most iconic estates of its appellation. Indeed, as remarked upon in Férét’s 1893 edition of Bordeaux et ses vins: “Château Siaurac is only separated by the first growths of Pomerol by a small trickle of water called the Barbane.”
