Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, Pessac Léognan, 2017

Tasting Note:

Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc was picked between 24th August and the 9th September, making it as early a harvest as in 2003 and 2011, though the overall impression of freshness trumps either of those warm early vintages. Crystalline and very pure on the nose, with fresh bergamot and orange blossom notes alongside limey green fruit and a long, complex fruit and spice dominated palate. Powerful, persistent and mouth-watering. A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 5% Semillon.
