Tasting Notes

Taken over by Jean-Christophe Mau in 2004, the quality of Chateau Brown has been on the rise ever since; With the 2009 vintage Jean-Christophe has taken the quality to a whole new level; The purity and sheer enjoyment this wine gives makes this one of the bargains of the vintage - Deep and rich, with succulent blackcurrant flavours which melt into roasted spice and coffee notes on the finish; Can be enjoyed immediately, or left to mature for the next decade James Griswood - Wine Buyer

Regional info

Pessac-Léognan, one of the oldest winemaking regions of Bordeaux, lies on the left bank of the Garonne just south of the city of Bordeaux itself. It is famous for its "gravelly" soil - In fact the word "Graves" (the name for the wider region of which it is part) means "gravel" in French. As with the Medoc appellations to the north, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be the predominent grape but the wines here often also have a higher proportion of Merlot in the blend. The wines of Pessac Leognan are typically characterised by their tobacco-like aroma and earthy flavours
