  1. 92 Wine Spectator Notes

    Very solid, with a core of gently steeped black currant and plum fruit that shows ample depth, while notes of bay, loam and bramble run underneath. A loamy edge echoes longest, thanks to well-embedded acidity. Best from 2019 through 2028. 6,500 cases made. -James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

  2. 91 Wine Advocate Notes

    The 2014 Brown, now in bottle, is building on the promise it showed in barrel. It has a ripe and generous bouquet with upfront cedar-infused black fruit. This property is always a little feisty in its youth and this 2014 is no different, though it needs 3-4 years to fully assimilate the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, delicious black fruit laced with tobacco and spices, gently fanning out towards the finish that offers commendable substance and length. A Pessac-Lognan property that I feel is undervalued in the marketplace, this 2014 Chteau Brown comes recommended and should drink well for 15-20 years. -Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

  3. 91-93 Vinous Notes

    A dark, explosive wine, the 2014 Brown hits the palate with tons of intensity and breadth. Black fruit, smoke, mint, leather and tobacco wrap around the huge, structured finish in a wine that brings together intense fruit with an equally imposing sense of structure. Consulting winemaker Frederic Massie continues to do impressive work at Brown, a historic estate in Pessac-Leognan that seems to be on the rise. There is a lot to like and look forward to. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. -Antonio Galloni, Vinous
