DECANTER: "Soft fragrance on the nose, ripe and cool black fruits with perfumed scents and crushed stones. Full bodied, supple and concentrated but so lively and energetic. Really a vibrancy to the expression with life and focus on clean and pure strawberry fruit with black cherries and some herbal edges raspberries. More serious and tense than the second wine with definition and delicate grip to the tannins that gives the wine a sense of weight and direction. Fruit is perfectly ripe and the tannin integration is excellent. Lovely senses of style and character with mouthwatering acidity and the most delicious crushed stone aspects giving a salty finish. Refined, classy and concentrated with lots of energy. Fantastic, still with grip, intensity and such underlying power. A great wine! 3.73pH. No Petit Verdot in the blend. 80% grand vin production. Yield: 29hl/ha. Total acidity: 3.2%"
JAMES SUCKLING: "Notes of chocolate, dark berry, nutmeg and dried orange peel. Full-bodied. Tannins are structured and velvety with a chalkiness to them. Compact and lingering."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „The 2022 Chateau Brown is deep garnet-purple in color. It flies out with notions of baked plums, blackberry pie, and dried mulberries, leading to touches of cassis, wild sage, unsmoked cigars, and cast-iron pan. Medium-bodied, the palate has lovely freshness and soft tannins supporting the black and red berry layers, finishing on a fragrant, earthy note."
