Description

THE STORY OF OUR SECOND WINE « LE COLOMBIER » -- “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. This “Colombier” (“dovecote” in english) was built in the eighteenth and its presence is the witness of the age and quality of the Château Brown vineyard. We have given this name to our second wine in memory of this prestigious past. THE LITTLE BROTHER OF CHATEAU BROWN -- The second wine is the reflection of Brown terroir and enjoys the same lavish care as the Grand Vin. The plots of vines are selected to make a fruitier, lighter, easy-drinking wine made to be enjoyed younger. Elegant and well structured, it can be enjoyed right away.
