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

94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

Full ruby-red.  Very ripe yet precise nose offers blueberry, black raspberry, violet, spices and sexy dried herbs; still a bit youthfully medicinal but already showing a lot of personality.  Rich, pliant and hugely deep, with near-chocolatey ripeness to the highly concentrated dark berry, tobacco and spice flavors.  This wonderfully broad, seamless, layered wine dusts the palate with ripe tannins and leaves the mouth perfumed.  Built for a long life in bottle but balanced from day one:  it's more bound-up today than the silkier and more voluptuous 2009 but I would not be surprised if this one eventually surpassed its younger sibling.
