Chateau Brown Blanc Pessac-Leognan 2006
Chateau Brown Blanc (Pessac-Leognan) 2006: This is fresh, with a lot of fruit presented in a vibrant and yet creamy fashion, with a slight note of lemon curd richness. Lively, direct, fresh, with substance. This has a good acid backbone and plenty of fleshy style. This is really nice. From a tasting of 2006 White Graves. 16-16.5+/20 (April 2008)
With all his respect for the history of Château BROWN, Jean-Christophe Mau had one dream, and one dream only: to place his ambitions at the service of this estate of 59 hectares (29 of vines) acquired at the end of 2004, and to cherish its vineyard in a manner worthy of the appellation’s most prestigious wines. By bringing out the best of BROWN’s gravel soils, moving towards careful, sustainable production techniques, optimising modern technical facilities and building the right team… the successive vintages since 2005 have revealed ever more generosity, care and precision. Over the years, the haute-couture wines of Château BROWN, red and white alike, have seen their quality and reputation soar.
