Version Française Assemblage : 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris, 5% Sémillon

Le Château Smith Haut Lafitte blanc 2014, d’une belle robe jaune pâle brillante, offre une expression aromatique vive d’agrumes et de fruits à chair jaune, signe d’une belle maturité : pomelo, pamplemousse jaune, pêche de vigne, abricot frais, mangue fraîche ; mais aussi des notes plus florales comme les fleurs de tilleul et d’acacia. Se mêlent à ce bouquet des notes plus délicates d’épices douces (badiane) et des notes empyreumatiques. La bouche est tendue avec une attaque franche. Puis la matière et la concentration apparaissent révélant un vin gras et onctueux tout en étant soutenu par une grande acidité qui lui assure une belle dynamique et une grande longueur. La finale est fantastique, saline, aromatique, fraîche avec une explosion de fruit blancs, de fleurs, d’épices et de fumé. La minéralité, la salinité et la savoureuse complexité de ce vin lui donnent le panache des plus grands blancs.

Bernard Burtschy, Le Figaro Vin, 2015 : 17,5/20

Le nez est marqué par le boisé sous des airs de sauvignon, mais le vin fait montre d'une puissance peu commune avec du volume et de la longueur. 90% sauvignon blanc, 5% sauvignon gris, 5% sémillon. 50% de fût neuf.


English Version BLEND : 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris, 5% Sémillon

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (218), April 2015 : 90-92+/100

The Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2014 is a blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% each of Sémillon and Sauvignon Gris matured in 50% new oak. Curiously, it seems less expressive than the Le Petit Haut Lafitte and Les Haut de Smith at the moment. This is very taciturn in comparison but leaving it aside for 10-15 minutes it finally reveals chalk and oyster shell scents. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity and sharp citric fruit, but it feels quite linear on the finish, does not really deliver the knock-out punch that other vintages deliver. Hopefully it will muster something more to say throughout the remainder of its barrel maturation.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, March 2015: 95-96/100

This is a phenomenal young white with wonderful depth and finesse. Amazing aromas and flavors of lavender, lemon peels, sliced apples, lilacs and minerals. Full body, intense fruit and a long, long finish. Superb depth and intensity.

Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, April 2015: 95/100

This increasingly impressive château, which now ranks alongside Bordeaux's very best, makes equally delicious reds and whites. This Sauvignon dominated blend is pale and restrained, with delicate oak, tangy, pithy acidity and undertones of stone fruit and vanilla spice. The finish is long and noble.

Château Smith Haut-Lafitte-Cru Classé de Graves en rouge-Appellation Pessac Léognan
Château Smith Haut-Lafitte Thanks to its 55 hectares of superb gravelly vineyards, Smith Haut Lafitte is often referred to as the “archetypal Graves”. The estate’s history goes back to the Crusades, when a Scottish navigator, George Smith, became owner of the estate in the 18th century. He was followed by Mr Duffour-Dubergier, Mayor of Bordeaux, and then Louis Eschenauer, a famous wine shipper. In 1990 Daniel and Florence Cathiard also fell under the spell of this beautiful estate. Since then, they restored the 16th century tower, renovated the 18th century manor house, built two underground cellars, went back to traditional vine growing methods without chemical herbicides and set up their own cooperage.
