- Ch Brown Pessac-Leognan 2012 Product #30920 (In Stock)
A big, rich, Bordeaux with density from Merlot (50%) and cut from Cabernet Sauvignon. Supple and tempting now - 2032.
"A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2012 Brown hits the palate with serious intensity and slightly rough contours that are going to need time to settle down. The high presence of Merlot (70%) and pushed, ripe style add to the wine's considerable personality. A rush of black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, licorice and incense leaves a positive last impression." Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points
"Nicely packed, with energetic flavors of blackberry cobbler, blueberry paste and boysenberry coulis, carried by a brambly structure and pushed by anise and ganache accents on the finish. Shows solid grip and should do well with cellaring. This has added some weight since the barrel tasting."Wine Spectator 91 points
