"Oh 1996 - the year I left secondary school, the year Damon Hill won the F1 world Championship (I was a fan) and the year that I tried booze for the first time. Doesn't mean a thing with regards to this wine, but I thought I'd let you see a little into my life. As for the wine? Well it is a cracking year, from a cracking producer, so the wine should be cracking! We got it straight from the Chateau so no hanging around in overheated kitchens for this big bottle."

Château Siran is a winery in the Margaux appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. The wine produced here was classified as one of 9 Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnels as of the 2003 listing.

A second wine is produced under the label S de Siran.[2] The average vines are 31 years old and once fermentation is complete the wines are transferred into oak barrels (35% new oak) for 12–14 months of aging. The grand vin averages 75,000 to 90,000 bottles per annum.
