A visit to the world’s wine cap­i­tal, Bordeaux

Recog­nised as the world’s wine cap­i­tal, Bordeaux is home not only to a UNESCO World her­itage cap­i­tal city, but also to over 120,000 hectares of out­stand­ing vine­yards and 5,000 cen­turies-old châteaux. Philip­pine Tatler Homes had the dis­tinct plea­sure of spend­ing a week­end at one such his­tor­i­cal es­tate, the beau­ti­ful Château Siran in the town of Labarde in the south of the Mar­gaux Ap­pel­la­tion, as guests of Edouard and Sevrine Mi­ailhe. The fam­ily of Edouard has owned the château for five gen­er­a­tions since 1859. Château Siran pro­duces close to 150,000 bot­tles an­nu­ally of First and Sec­ond wine, a fine ex­am­ple of the equi­lib­rium, subtelty and com­plex­ity of great Mar­gaux wines. Since 2013, it has been open to vis­i­tors who are wel­come to tour the prop­erty (by ap­point­ment) and dis­cover all about the art of wine­mak­ing.
