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

  • Château Cantenac Brown Margaux Grand Cru Classé 2007


    Very herbaceous nose, slightly oaky yet rather classic in a lean style, floral and berries with freshly crushed fruit notes soft entry, rich and velvety feel, perhaps a bit too extracted, has a bit too much tannin, dark coffee flavors, a bit middy on the mid-palate, woody finish (85-86) Read More

    Floral and light on the nose with a grilled meaty edge touched with baking spices and a bit of cooked rhubarb lean entry, tight, soft ripe tannins, mid-palate is bright but a touch lean, dry finish is short and savory (85-86) Read More

  • Château Brown Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 1996

Red fruit is there with some lovely bright strawberry tones. Some tobacco, earth and hints of red pepper. It ends on a sweet, herbaceous-laced bright red fr... Read More

Color was a deep rich purple with a tinge of brown. The nose had medium intensity with aromas of spice (clove) pepper and dark chocolate. On the palate there was wood and l... Read More

  • What's the worst wine you have ever had? I had some Don Luciano Shiraz over the weekend (which is a $4.00 wine I picked up at Wal-Mart...just to see). I had had the Don Luciano Chardonnay and it was OK, but the Shiraz I had smelled like road kill (very heavy sulfur)--I wonder if I got a bad bottle.  Has anyone else tried it? Read More

  • Not, I repeat not, a thread about whether the 2009 Bordeaux is great, but more about whether you trust the reviews. After the 2009 en primeur week, the opinion is unsurprisingly about a brilliant "vintage of the decade". I think this is the 3rd in the last 10 years n'est-ce-pas? So do we need to review how we review the en primeur? Do you trust ... Read More
