Chateau Brown Pessac-Leognan Blanc 2002

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £15 from the www.cellartrade.co.uk website. The Pessac-Leognan appellation was created in 1987 out of what had been the northern part of the Graves appellation and is close to the southern part of the City of Bordeaux.My bottle comes from the well known estate of Chateau Brown,consists of 70% sauvignon blanc and 30% semillon and was aged in oak barrels for 9 months I started the bottle last night with my supper of smoked salmon and salad. The wine has a very deep amber colour and is definitely a dry wine. There is plenty of a sour [though not unpleasantly so] apple fruit and also a distinct nutty [almond] taste. Bland or mineral this is not. There are lots of flavours for the drinker and it went well with my fish

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.The chateau was bought by Jean-Christophe Mau,a fifth generation wine trader with interests in other properties as well in 2004 and he has undertaken considerable investments.There are 60 hectares under vine and a range of red and white [and since 2012 rose as well] wines are produced Read less
