Winemaker Notes

The harvests were rather early with the grapes in perfect health. We picked the first Sauvignon Blanc grapes on 31 August and the last Semillon on 11 September, with a level of ripeness and richness rarely seen. Château Brown's 2018 whites have a unique profile, with relatively low levels of acidity and unusually intense exotic fruit aromas.

Blend: 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Rich and detailed, with verbena, honeysuckle and white peach notes intermingled with lemon peel, gooseberry gelée and thyme accents. The long, stylish finish ripples with a fleur de sel hint. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.
JS 94
James Suckling
A medium-bodied white with aromas of dried lime and apple, grapefruit zest, crushed flint and some smoke and vanilla. Textured and focused with bright acidity and a long, mineral finish. Better from 2022 and onwards.
D 92
Decanter

Brown always produces a richer style of white, which suits this vintage. The apricot and white peach flesh is given full rein. I tasted the 2015 very recently and can fully see the similarities in terms of how it will develop, which gives me huge confidence to recommend this.Drinking Window 2019 - 2028. Barrel Sample: 92

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Brown 2018 Blanc has an open-knit, expressive nose of lemon tart, key lime pie and warm grapefruit plus hints of crushed stones and mandarin peel. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers great intensity with layers of citrus and mineral notions and a long, lively finish.
Barrel Sample: 90-92

Chateau Brown, France
Chateau Brown Winery Image
Chateau 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, Chateau 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 owners came and went at Chateau Brown over the centuries and the estate alternated between glory and neglect. It was not until the late 20th century that the estate was fully restored to its former eminent position under the impulse of Bernard Barthe, the master of the chateau for the last decade.

In December 2004, he decided to place his “life’s work” in the hands of a famous dynasty of wine traders who had been at the forefront of winegrowing in Bordeaux since 1897: the Mau family, in partnership with the Dutch Dirkzwager family. When you discover the gently-sloping vineyard, its thousand-year-old history and its majestic building in which the finest paintings by J. L. Brown are still kept, you can understand the passion that Chateau Brown arouses in Jean-Christophe Mau, the current manager. He devotes himself fully to the estate, backed up by the experience of his elders and his convictions as a young winegrower, but also borne by a deep fascination for this place with its exceptional past.
