A richly fruity, soft, corpulent Pessac-Leognan, the dark ruby/plum-tinged 2011 Brown reveals evolved aromatics of roasted herbs, loamy soil and red as well as black currants. Already charming, this medium-bodied offering should be drunk over the next 5-7 years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate April 2012

A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot, the Brown Rouge has a surprisingly dense, opaque bouquet of lifted blackberry and boysenberry fruit, the fruit nicely integrated. The palate has a slight bitterness on the entry and it is a very tight sample (despite leaving the bottle open for one hour.) However, it has respectable purity, brittle tannins and fine focus towards the coca-tinged finish. Fine. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A little hard but some good blueberry and mineral character. Medium body. Fresh finish. The high percentage of Cabernet makes it a little tough. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

This has concentration and grip, with layered cassis, raspberry coulis and blackberry paste flavors driving along hints of sweet spice. The finish is dense but polished. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sémillon. Very pale lemon. Attractively ripe citrus and pear fruit with a touch of orange and a suggestion of creaminess. Plenty of freshness even with such ripe – almost tropical - fruit flavours. Mealy oak flavour and fine-grained texture can't keep the exuberant fruit down. Flavourful and immediate.
