From bookkeeping notes at the estate, Etienne Rabion was selling both red and white wine from the estate in the 1750s. The estate changed hands in 1832 wen Pierre Brisson purchased the estate. The estate passed through the his descendants until in 2014. At that time, a large percentage of the Chateau was sold to Francois Pinault and the Artemis group. Mr. Pinault owns Chateau Latour in Pauillac. The final family shares were sold to the Artemis in 2017. They retain full control of the Chateau.

The large, 46 hectare Chateau Siaurac vineyard is planted to 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. Te Chateau also has 15 hectares of parkland on the estate. The estate is spearated by the great Pomerol wine by the Barbane; a small stream.

Fresh and charming, with cherry and strawberry fruit flavors gliding through atop sandalwood and light herb notes. Drink now through 2023. 17,083 cases made.

This is the second vintage produced as entirely biodynamic under Latour tutelage. These are good, bright and pliable tannins, and the fruit is extremely dark with good spice through the palate. I really like the cut herbs on the nose. This is a wine that has improved over recent years and is really one to watch. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038.
Vinous: 91
The 2016 Siaurac is silky, perfumed and exceptionally beautiful. Readers will find a restrained Lalande de Pomerol built on finesse and class. Sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and pretty herbal notes add shades of complexity throughout.
James Suckling: 92
Bright flowers and attractive red berries on offer here with a really succulent, velvety palate that offers rich red-plum flavors. Long and juicy resolve. A blend of 74 per cent merlot, 19 per cent cabernet franc and seven per cent malbec. Try from 2021.
