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.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014
Ruby-red. Enticing perfume of blackberry, violet, aromatic herbs and minerals. Clean, fresh and lively on the palate, showing noteworthy precision to the savory dark berry and herb flavors. Finishes pure and moderately long, with less oak showing than usual for this wine. Should offer early accessibility but has the stuffing to improve over the next decade.
