Pessac-Léognan property Château Brown has revamped its bottle with effect from the 2016 vintage, which is set to be launched into the UK this year.
The packaging features a new, darker bottle with a narrower neck, designed ‘to conserve the wine and reduce exchanges between inside and outside the bottle’.
The label has a new engraving of the property, including a dove as a reminder of the estate’s dovecote, built in the 18th century.
Château Brown’s white wine from the 2016 vintage will be delivered to customers in early 2018, with the red wine due to follow this autumn.
The white wine is a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon, at 13.5% abv. Production is limited to 22,350 bottles.
Meanwhile, the property has obtained the HVE (High Environmental Value) certification, a recognition of its work on good agricultural practices and conservation of biodiversity.
