Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte
01 June 2016

Smith Haut Lafitte has come a long way since Daniel and Florence Cathiard took the reins in 1990. This is now a state of the art Chateau incorporating all the best viticultural practices with modern winemaking techniques. We have watched and admired as the quality has improved, culminating in the 100 point 2009; although, we’re not sure we don’t prefer the 2010! 2015 is yet another spellbinding vintage at this estate. The red has it all; wonderful aromatics, stunning purity of flavour and the most gorgeous velvety texture. Unsurprisingly, it warrants an enormous 95-97 points from Neal Martin! This is exactly the same score and price as Pape Clement Rouge (which sold out in quick time), the only difference is, you’ll have a lot more fun with this in your cellar!

The white is also rather spectacular with its complex aromatics, gorgeous texture and long, vibrant finish. Neal quite rightly describes it as ‘another outstanding white Smith-Haut-Lafitte from winemaker Fabien Tietgen and the famille Cathiard’.
