2018 Château Brown  (Pessac-Léognan) 92

Wet earth, smoke, thyme, mint and red pit fruits create the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, fresh, silky and loaded with sweet, dark cherries. This is going to be even better with 3-5 years of age. 91-93 Pts

Medium bodied, juicy and forward, there is a groovy smoky character to the red fruits. Tobacco leaf and herbs kick in on the back end. The wine will benefit from a few years of bottle age. 89 Points

2008 Château Brown Blanc  (Pessac-Léognan) 88

Fully mature, the wine retains some of its crispness but has taken on aged honeyed attributes to accompany the citrus and green apple core of fruit. This is starting to tire and oxidize, so drink up. 88 Points

2005 Château Brown  (Pessac-Léognan) 89

A charming Pessac Leognan with smoke, dark cherries, cassis and earthy scents. Medium/full bodied with soft textures, the wine finishes with round, spicy plum sensations. This is already drinking well. This will not make old bones. I'd drink it over the next 5-8 years. 89 Points
