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.

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2008

Bright yellow. Aromas of apricot, honey and resin. Dense, ripe and serious, with lovely volume and lift to the stone fruit and spice flavors. A very round, mouthcoating wine in which one can taste the 5% semillon component (the wine also contains 90% sauvignon blanc and 5% sauvignon gris). This tastes like lower acidity than the 2007, but there is no shortage of energy.

Sauvignon Blanc

For all of its name recognition and reputation for high-quality plantings and bottlings, Sauvignon Blanc has never been represented in lists or discussions of the spectacular wines of the world.
