Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling

This is really polished and pretty with blackberry, iodine, chocolate and spice. It’s full-bodied, layered and so attractive. 64% cabernet sauvignon, 34% merlot and 2% petit verdot. Barrel Sample: 93-94

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This wine shows the structure that will stand it in good stead as it develops made from 60-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Its dark tannins march with the developing black currant fruits. The wine will certainly age well.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
D 92
Decanter
Elegant and finessed, this is sleek and well balanced with careful oak impact. Chocolate and damson, classic balance on display and a ton of Pessac-Léognan character with good tannic frame.
Barrel Sample: 92

Chateau Brown Winery Image
Chateau Brown, as its name suggests, bears testimony to the close links that have always existed between the Bordeaux region and the Anglo-Saxons. Founded in the late Middle Ages when Aquitaine belonged to England, Chateau Brown owes its name to the wealthy Scottish wine trader John Lewis Brown, who settled in Bordeaux in the late 18th century. An enthusiast of wines and art, this epicurean passed on not only his name but also his passions to his grandson, the animal painter John Lewis Brown.

The owners came and went at Chateau Brown over the centuries and the estate alternated between glory and neglect. It was not until the late 20th century that the estate was fully restored to its former eminent position under the impulse of Bernard Barthe, the master of the chateau for the last decade.

In December 2004, he decided to place his “life’s work” in the hands of a famous dynasty of wine traders who had been at the forefront of winegrowing in Bordeaux since 1897: the Mau family, in partnership with the Dutch Dirkzwager family. When you discover the gently-sloping vineyard, its thousand-year-old history and its majestic building in which the finest paintings by J. L. Brown are still kept, you can understand the passion that Chateau Brown arouses in Jean-Christophe Mau, the current manager. He devotes himself fully to the estate, backed up by the experience of his elders and his convictions as a young winegrower, but also borne by a deep fascination for this place with its exceptional past.

Recognized for its superior reds as well as whites, Pessac-Léognan on the Left Bank claims classified growths for both—making it quite unique in comparison to its neighboring Médoc properties.

Pessac’s Chateau Haut-Brion, the only first growth located outside of the Médoc, is said to have been the first to conceptualize fine red wine in Bordeaux back in the late 1600s. The estate, along with its high-esteemed neighbors, La Mission Haut-Brion, Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pique-Caillou and Chateau Pape-Clément are today all but enveloped by the city of Bordeaux. The rest of the vineyards of Pessac-Léognan are in clearings of heavily forested area or abutting dense suburbs.

Arid sand and gravel on top of clay and limestone make the area unique and conducive to growing Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc as well as the grapes in the usual Left Bank red recipe: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and miniscule percentages of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The best reds will show great force and finesse with inky blue and black fruit, mushroom, forest, tobacco, iodine and a smooth and intriguing texture.

Its best whites show complexity, longevity and no lack of exotic twists on citrus, tropical and stone fruit with pronounced floral and spice characteristics.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
