A brief history

An ideal location and temperate climate…

In the Northern Graves – the oldest winegrowing terroir in Bordeaux dating back 2,000 years – Château Brown lies in the heart of the young Pessac-Léognan appellation created in 1987 by André Lurton, a key winegrowing figure in Bordeaux.

Bordered by vast forests and built-up areas (the towns of Gradignan, Villenave d’Ornon and Léognan), the vineyards enjoy a micro-climate that is ideal for the grape ripening process and therefore the quality of the wine.

Château Brown covers some 60 hectares, including 31 hectares of vines in a single stretch: 26 hectares for reds and 5 ha for whites. For the red wines, the vineyard comprises a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%) and Merlot (45%), plus 2% of Petit Verdot. The varieties on the plots dedicated to white wines are 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon.

“Le Colombier de Brown” refers to a beautiful stone dovecote set in the grounds facing the house – a sign of wealth back in feudal times. Le Colombier de Brown is a different expression of the “Brown” terroir. Made only in particularly generous vintages, the second white wine is made with a majority of Semillon, along with some Sauvignon Blanc. Le Colombier de Brown White boasts the same smooth mouthfeel as the Grand Vin, thanks to the Semillon, and a delicately woody hint, in a slightly more nervy style.
