VINTAGE NOTES per Château Brown "Still a little closed on the nose, but nonetheless very complex with citrus notes, superb spice and pepper aromas, and a clear mineral nuance. On the palate, we find the dominant characteristics of the 2015 vintage, with strength and smoothness. It is almost sensually full-bodied, with a promising aromatic expression. This wine will age well, and will perfectly accompany a variety of different dishes.
"The 2015 Brown Blanc has a lively, showy bouquet with lime cordial and freshly squeezed grapefruit scents that are neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, tropical tones of nectarine, Clementine and peach rending this almost drinkable now. It is well balanced and displays fine length, a white Pessac that should give great pleasure over the next 12-15 years." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2016, Issue 224), Ratings: 91-93, Drink: 2018-2030
"Racy and well-defined, with mouthwatering thyme, verbena and chamomile notes leading the way, backed by lively lemon zest, white peach and star fruit flavors. Offers a salted butter finish. Drink now through 2022." - James Molesworth (2017), WINE SPECTATOR, Ratings: 92
