Château 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, Château 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. – Description from Kursulla

  • Carnivores and grillers, a few reasons to love Syrah: it’s a fantastic wine for pairing with any roasted meats, especially red meats like beef and lamb, as well as wild game. It is often peppery and sometimes smoky, with a roasted fruit and/or roasted meat flavor profile that makes it a fine accompaniment to anything barbecued or grilled (even, ... Read More

  • There's an argument to be made for Riesling, and it's made on a regular basis. It goes something like this: Riesling is great, it's flexible and it's food friendly, with wines ranging from dry to syrupy sweet, so there's something for everyone to like. This has been the argument of the day for years now. Trouble is Riesling still finds resistanc... Read More

  • Château Brown Lamartine Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice '05 Bordeaux that started out with a bit of medicine but quickly came around with dark plum, blackberry, medium tannin and medium oak. Nothing over the top but nicely balanced with a decent finish. Needed some air time to open up. Read More

  • Yesterday, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies released the menu as well as the wines for Obama's 2nd inauguration dinner on January 21st.  They must have had a lapse of clear thinking describing their American sparkling wine choice as Champagne in their press release. The exact wording of the wine was Korbel Natural, Speci... Read More

  • Well. I finally finished of this batch.  We had a little get-together with some friends on the deck at the Villa Riviera where b-i-l lives.  It was mostly a white wine night (because of the menu and the preferences of most of the participants), but I did bring a bottle of Zinfandel and the magnum of the unlabeled Bordeaux.  I did not do too badl...
