Bright ruby red, with a kiss of smoky grilled oak, along with raspberry and redcurrant fruit, well balanced and juicy with a slate finish. An attractive 2021, one to look out for, great stuff from the Mialhe family. A solid structure, plenty of depth and a good core. Hubert de Bouard consultant. Harvest September 23 to October 9, with a generous 51hl/h yield. Impressive, tasted twice. 92 Jane Anson.
A layered and fine-tannined red with currants and light graphite and stone undertones, Medium body. Fresh, linear finish. Grows on the palate. 91-92 James Suckling.
The 2021 Siran has a delicate, perfumed bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry and light cassis scents. The palate is malleable, with fleshy red fruit that segues into darker fruit laced with graphite. Nicely balanced, this Siran should drink well over the next 12–15 years. 90-92 Neal Martin.
Pretty, wild floral notes on the nose alongside fresh raspberry. Supple and agile, this has a lovely ease to it - not showy or too loud, but gentle and calm, delivering chalky, creamy red fruits with soft, fine, graphite-edged tannins. Pleasing acidity gives a persistent if not totally lively lift throughout, and this has an unfussy charm with lovely crushed stone salinity on the finish. No drop in the mid-palate, but lightly flavoured with gentle persistency. Easy to enjoy. 92 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
