Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte – Pessac-Leognan Rouge 2009 (Stock Clearance – Damaged Labels)

RM1,566.0

One of our staff made a booboo in our warehouse, broke a bottle on top of our last 2 cases of this splendid wine. So, the juice dripped down and dirtied the labels at different spots (see photo). Yet the wines are in perfect condition, great level, no leakage, and now arrived at perfect maturity. Not necessarily a bottle to showcase, but a definitely great deal for a wine ready to drink. No return/exchange accepted.

The finest wine ever made by proprietors Daniel and Florence Cathiard, the 2009 Smith-Haut-Lafitte exhibits an opaque blue/purple color in addition to a glorious nose of acacia flowers, licorice, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, lead pencil shavings and incense. This massive, extraordinarily rich, unctuously textured wine may be the most concentrated effort produced to date, although the 2000, 2005 and 2010 are nearly as prodigious. A gorgeous expression of Pessac-Leognan with sweet tannin, emerging charm and delicacy, and considerable power, depth, richness and authority, it should age effortlessly for 30-40+ years.

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.
