Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Brown Pessac Leognan 2016

Rated 94 by Wine Enthusiast
Owned by the Mau family, this estate has produced an impressive wine in 2016. Ripe in swathes of black currant fruit as well as subtle, elegant tannins, it is going to age well over many years.
Rated 92 by James Suckling
Very pretty currant aromas with hints of asphalt and tar. Medium to full body and firm,silky tannins. Attractive fruit and structure. Try after 2022.
Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
A solid, slightly robust style, with waves of dark currant and blackberry paste flavors rolling through, underscored by tar, alder and sweet tobacco notes. A bramble accent is buried deep on the finish, while the tobacco edge lingers. Best from 2023 through 2032. 6,158 cases made.

Winery Chateau Brown

Region: Bordeaux

Although most commonly associated with their superb blended red wines, the world-famous region of Bordeaux in France is responsible for a relatively wide array of wines, ranging from the sweet and viscous white wines of Sauternes, to the dry and acidic single variety white wines found all over the region. However, it is the red wines which regularly make the wine world's headlines, and have historically been regarded as the finest on earth. The secret to the region's success is the fact that the warm and humid climate, coupled with mineral rich clay and gravel based soils produces grapes of excellent quality. Wineries in this region have spent hundreds of years mastering the art of blending and oak aging in order to get the best results from each grape, and remain the envy of the world to this day.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
