SMITH HAUT LAFITTE

fra Assemblage : 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Smith Haut Lafitte 2015 est un vin rouge très sombre, presque noir. Le nez exprime un bouquet de fruits noirs et de fruits rouges très frais. A l’agitation, le nez se révèle plus complexe avec des notes d’épices, de cèdre, de réglisse associées à des notes de violette et une touche de pierre à fusil. La bouche est franche, dynamique, puissante, dense, racée. Les tanins sont concentrés, onctueux et suaves. Ils confèrent une grande longueur et une belle texture à ce vin. On retrouve en bouche les fruits croquants et mûrs accompagnés d’une dimension plus épicée, du cédrat, de la girofle et une très belle finale aux notes florales et minérales.

Bernard Burtschy, Le Figaro Vin, 2016 : 18/20

Le vin est dense avec un splendide moelleux soyeux en milieu de bouche, les tannins sont fins, l’ensemble d’une grande longueur avec une finale éblouissante. Un grand vin, plus équilibré que 2010 et 2009, plus dense que 2005. Bravo !

Bettane & Dessauve, 2016 : 18/20

Vin de grande élégance profonde, brillant. Belle couleur, ensemble riche, harmonieux, élégant dans son tannin et dans son style plus racé encore que 2009 et plus harmonisé que 2010. Il fera une grande bouteille.


eng Blend : 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (224), April 2016: 95-97/100

The 2015 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is adorned with a special label to celebrate the 650th anniversary of the château and the 25th vintage made under the ownership of Daniel and Florence Cathiard. It is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, picked between 23 September until 12 October with the Cabernet Franc. Matured in 65% new oak (although technical director Fabien Teitgen mentioned that he could have added more if he felt it would benefit), it has a very intense, blueberry and crème de cassis scented bouquet, a touch more opulent than its peers with hints of freshly shucked oyster shell developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin couched in gorgeous, satin-textured black cherry and cassis fruit, tinged with cedar and pencil shavings. It lingers very long and sensually in the mouth, completing a sophisticated and powerful Smith Haut-Lafitte that should age in splendid fashion.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, March 2016: 97-98/100

This is a very polished and precise young wine with beautiful depth and intensity. Full and sexy. It shows blueberry and black currant character with walnut and chocolate undertones. The tannins have a lovely texture. Joy to taste.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2016: 18/20

New black label to celebrate the Cathiards' anniversary and that of the property. Very dark. Comfortable base and lots of perfume. Round and sweet. Tense and tight. An excitingly taut package that promises well. Drink 2024-2040.

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.
