Château-Siaurac Lalande de Pomerol 2015
Today, Siaurac is owned by the owner of Château Latour, Francois Pinault and the Artemis group. It is therefore made by an exceptional, world class team : the technical director from Chateau Latour, Penelope Godefroy, has worked with Jean-Claude Berrouet, the winemaker at Pétrus for 40 years. The 2015 Siaurac is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It tastes rich, velvety and pure with notes of cherry, mocha, licorice and rose petals. We have enjoyed many bottles at home over the last 25 years of this under-the-radar, classic Bordeaux red. Pair with filet mignon, lamb chops, roasted pork, Comté Gruyere cheese, Petit Basque sheep's milk cheese, meat pâté and/or cured meats.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Siaurac has long been making some "nifty" Lalande-de-Pomerol and this is well worth investigating. It has a sensual, fruit-forward bouquet with plenty of black cherry and cassis fruit that does not overpower. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. There is a couple of layers of new oak to be absorbed, but there is sufficient fruit to do that and it finished with attractive truffle and white pepper notes that offer fine salinity.
Bottle ShopSupple, round and deep in flavor, this Lalande de Pomerol showcases the pure deliciousness of good Merlot. Black cherry, licorice and sweet mocha abound. Siaurac is fine and reputable Chateau on the Right Bank of Bordeaux.
