Ballerina - Chateau Brown Rosé

An elegant pink from Chateau Brown

Fly it, sigh it, try it ...
Step right up, and step right up
And step right up
Just like a ballerina
Stepping lightly

- Ballerina, Van Morrison (Astral Weeks, 1968)

Chateau Brown is based in the Pessac-Léognan appellation of Bordeaux and, despite a history dating back around a thousand years, is only a decade-or-so old under its present ownership.

This pink is ballerina-esque, delicate yet athletic.

Château Brown Rosé 2016 ripe, soft red-berry fruit; fresh and mineral wit toasty leesiness. Elegant, long and precise.

Very Good.

Drink as an aperitif or with prawn starters.
