November & December 2016

16th december 2016


These last two months Château Brown has been able to meet its consumers, customers and other wine lovers during several events …

We participated in some exhibitions: at Decanter Fine Wine Encounter, which took place in London on the weekend of November 12th, at Salon Vins et Gastronomie in Nantes on the weekend of November 18th, but also at Bordeaux Tasting at the Palais de la Bourse, an exhibition organized by Terre de Vins, which welcomed more than 8000 visitors for its fifth edition on the weekend of 10 December!

As part of the promotion of our wines, in partnership with the Pessac-Léognan wine syndicate, we have also chosen to participate in three events.
On 6 November we were at the Opéra de Bordeaux as part of a concert-tasting of Pessac-Léognan. A month later, on December 6th we were also part of the wines of the appellation that we could taste during the evening of the Aquitains of the Year which was held at La Faïencerie in Bordeaux. Highlight of the year at the property: we also received you during the open doors of December 3rd and 4th. Our vat room and our cellars were open to the visit, then our white 2015 and red 2010 were offered to the tasting. Like last year a food truck was present: « Le Camion Brousse », offering tasty dishes … But it was also possible to taste our wines with Basque cheese, thanks to our partnership with a producer of Ossau Iraty cheese.

Jean-Christophe Mau traveled to Paris to have a tasting session in front of some students, members of OENS, the oenology club of ENS Paris and Chartres school. This is the 5th time this year that Chateau Brown Castle is invited in a pretigious school.
