About Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte

Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte is old. How old? Well, in 1365, when most of the Medoc was marshland, yet to be drained by the Dutch, Smith Haut Lafitte was already under vine. Today, it is owned by former olympic skier Daniel Cathiard, who purchased the estate in 1990.

Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

($39-$46) Saturated medium ruby. Highly aromatic nose of dark berries, leather, tar, tobacco and violet. Suave and fine-grained, with lovely concentration and pliant texture. The violet and tobacco notes carry through in the mouth. In a distinctly gentler style than the 2002, finishing with smooth, fine tannins and subtle persistence.
