Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte – Pessac-Leognan Blanc 2017

RM856.0

One of the whites of the vintage is the 2017 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, which is based on 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% each of Sauvignon Gris and Semillon. Offering a huge, salty, mineral-laced bouquet of crushed lemons, acacia flowers, pineapple, and crushed rocks, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, racy acidity, a stacked mid-palate, and a crisp, chiseled, lengthy finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. It has the fruit and texture to drink nicely even today, yet my money is on it benefiting from 2-4 years of bottle age, and it should have over two decades of longevity.

Description

Founded in 1365, this great growth owned by remarkable figures such as the Scottish navigator Georges Smith in the 18th century and Lodi Duffour-Dubergier in the 19th century, owes its reputation as “the quintessential Graves” to its superb terroir of günzian gravel in a single block.

Since its purchase by Florence and Daniel Cathiard in 1990, Smith Haut Lafitte has settled among the leading great growths of Bordeaux thanks to its elegant, complex, powerful and balanced red and white wines, faithful to their terroir. This internationally recognized level of quality is due to 25 years of “bio precision” work, a unique approach that combines the best of nature and the best of science.
A must for wine lovers visiting the Bordeaux region,Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte is open seven days a week upon reservation. Come and discover the cooperage, the underground cellar with a thousand barrels, the gravity operated vat room that vinifies “terroir entities” separately, the farm, the “stealth cellar” inspired by the circular economy and see the horses ploughing the vineyard in front of the windows of Les Sources de Caudalie and its famous spa.
