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

  • Chateau Clos Cheval Brun Saint Emilion 1970

    Snoothrank:

    I was given this bottle of wine after a house clearance in Fulham,I thought it an unusual bottle because it is sqare sided rather than cylindrical. I do not know where in the house it was found but the level was almost into the neck and when I opened it the corkl was sodden with wine so I would surmise reasonable storage conditions.I have not be...

  • Chateau Brown Pessac Leognan Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This Pessac-Leognan blanc was well received by critics upon release, and, indeed, the wine is exceptional for the price: the scent is mysteriously Sauvignon Blanc with fresh musk and lemon grass one moment and Semillon the next with fig and spiced apple; colour is quite deep yellow and entry is infused with cake spice, granny smith apple pie an...

  • Post here about wines that used to satisfy, but for whatever reason (corporate buyout, founder dying, price gouging or other repositionings resulting from lusting lunges towards greater monetary reward, etc., etc. ad nauseum) have either disappeared or now become a disappointment.

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • You’ll know a glass of Bordeaux when you sniff it -- from the pencil shavings of Pauillac to the elderflowers of Pessac-Leognan. Bordeaux is synonymous quality; it’s a universal truth of the collective wine consciousness. But while quality is often associated with premium pricing, this doesn’t mean you can’t find a great bargain in Bordeaux. The... Read More
