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.

94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012

Good bright red-ruby.  Enticing aromas of blueberry, flowers, graphite and charred, nutty oak, plus a sexy suggestion of floral white fruit.  Like liquid silk on entry, then concentrated and lush in the middle, with red plum, tobacco and mineral flavors given definition by lovely harmonious acidity.  Utterly seamless wine with suave tannins.  Voluminous and intense but not a powerhouse.  Finishing flavors mount slowly and stain the palate without leaving any impression of weight.  Conveys a beautiful impression of site and vintage.  The most complete young Smith Haut Laffite I've yet tasted at this early stage; perhaps my score will ultimately prove to be conservative.
