Chateau Siran 1996

 

Wine Spectator: "A lean and hard wine, but clean and fresh. Aromas of red currant and berry followthrough to the palate, with medium tannins and a slightly hard finish. Needs a bit of age to mellow. Best after 2000. 9,000 cases made."

 

Rated 87

Wine Spectator

 

Robert Parker: "Muscular, spicy, the 1996 Siran, while neither opulent nor supple, appears to be a well-made, well-structured wine that is meant to go the long haul."

 

Rated 86-87 Robert M. Parker Jr.
