CHATEAU SMITH HAUT LAFITTE 2018

0,75 L Red Wine / France / Bordeaux / Pessac-Léognan AOC / 14,5 % vol

"It's one of the best Smith-Haut Lafitte wines I have tasted." J. Suckling
At the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, this vineyard is planted in gunz gravel with stones and quartz, and extends over 67 hectares. This Château Smith Haut Lafitte has executed an beautiful vintage. Aside from its finesse and elegance, this vintage offers a beautiful concentration of flavours of blackcurrant, blueberries, blackberries, elderberries and with notes of incense, violet and peppermint. And it finishes leaving a lovely freshness in the mouth. It has a sharp attack that's soft and rounded, even caressing. You'll find aromas of leather, light burnt wood and some roasted notes. The concentration and smoothness of the fruit is supported by a good tannic structure. We will discover its full potential with a little patience!

CHÂTEAU SMITH HAUT-LAFITTE

After careers as skiers, the Cathiard family bought the Smith Haut Lafitte estate in 1990, a real jewel whose name has been one of the most emblematic of Bordeaux wines for several centuries. Driven by the desire to produce one of the best wines in the world and aware of the richness of their Pessac-Léognan terroir, the owners combine ancestral methods (manual harvesting, compost making, ploughing on horseback, total elimination of herbicides) and new technologies. On these same lands, their daughter Mathilde and her husband Bertrand created the first Vinothérapie® spa and the cosmetics brand Caudalie®.
