PRODUCER: The history of Château Siran dates back to the 19th century, precisely on January 14, 1859, when the Château became the property of the Miailhe family. Their ancestor, Leo Barbier, bought the estate for 100,000 Francs from the Comte and the Countess of Toulouse-Lautrec, the grandparents of the famous painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. It is 4 years after the famous classification of Crus Classés of 1855 that this Château will enter a family of wine professionals. From the middle of the 19th century, the descendants will follow one another in the respect of the family tradition. In 2007, the 5th generation, represented by Edouard Miailhe, manages the property following William-Alain and Brigitte Miailhe. Château Siran becomes one of the rare Médoc Grands Crus to have belonged to the same family for more than 150 years.
WINEMAKING: The vineyard of Siran is located on the plateau Labarde, in the Margaux appellation. It is literally surrounded by Crus Classés in 1855.
