    We sold almost 2000 bottles of their great 2009 and 2010 vintages at $34 to $39 dollars. This wine is close in quality and less than $25 makes it the bargain for 2014 Bordeaux. I agree with James Molesworth's notes. I am a 93 on it. "Very solid, with a core of gently steeped black currant and plum fruit that shows ample depth, while notes of bay, loam and bramble run underneath. A loamy edge echoes longest, thanks to well-embedded acidity."

    As always, this very reliable château has in 2014 not disappointed. Quite the contrary. Its full full body wine, with notes of coffee and brown sugar, still need time in the cellar to mellow out its tannins. For sure a wine for the cellars - a good 10 to 20 years will do.

    This is a delicious young wine that will only get better with time. There is a touch of brawn to the edge of the blackberry and currant fruit and the high quality oak buffers the intense minerality. This is dark and pure. Decanting recommended.

    A cool summer followed by warm, nearly perfect autumn weather in 2014 yielded a wine with lively acidity combined with generous ripe, sweet fruit. Loads of red and black fruits here – raspberries and cherries – with a deft touch of spicy oak (40% new). Nicely mineral in expression. Terrific value. Very well-priced. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot.

    The Chateau Brown 2014 is my top value in fine Cabernet blends in the store. This graceful blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot is an outstanding ambassador for the fresh and delicious 2014's. It has all of the dark cassis fruit that we love in Cab, but without the sugar, excessive alcohol and big tannins. This will make a wonderful partner to steaks on the grill, with its great cut and moreish refreshment. Save room in your cellar- it is only going to get better!
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2034
