Chateau Brown 2001

88+ points

Pessac-Leogan, Bordeaux, France 13%

I really wasn’t expecting such a robust wine. Dark with plenty of French oak. Quite intense and burly. Not fleshy or alcoholic, but rather raw. Needs more time (3+ years). A surprise for a relatively unknown and not expensive wine, at 6 years old, from a vintage that wasn’t super ripe or concentrated.

TheWineDoctor has a history of the estate.
