fra Assemblage : 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

Le Figaro Vin, Avril 2017 : 19/20

Fruits noirs, Zan, épices, poivre blanc, floral. Bouche fraîche, tannins souples, amples, crémeux, très joli touché de bouche.

Bettane & Desseauve, Avril 2017 : 96-97/100

Complexe, subtil, tannin très harmonieux, grande longueur, sans doute le plus abouti de toute son histoire récente.

JM Quarin, Avril 2017 : 96/100

Le meilleur jamais fait ! Moelleux en entrée en bouche, très, très juteux au développement, riche, mais aérien, le vin se trame en milieu de bouche et évolue profond avec beaucoup de goût et de longueur en finale. C'est très bon !


eng Blend : 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (230), April 2017 : 96-98/100

The 2016 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot that was picked between 29 September and 19 October at 35 hectoliters per hectare. It is being matured in 60% new oak for a total of 18 months. "We have never been so proud of our Cabernet Sauvignon," winemaker Fabien Tietgen told me. Now, this has a much subtler bouquet than recent vintages, you could argue, more intellectual than the 2015 Smith-Haut-Lafitte. First there are aromas of blackberry, briary and just a hint of iodine, then underneath that, marine-like aromas such as freshly shucked oyster shells, pressed flowers and a touch of brown spice. There is wonderful delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of tightly-wound black fruit, intermingling with smoke, black pepper, spice box and a touch of bay leaf. This is an extremely precise Smith-Haut-Lafitte, certainly a cerebral 2016 that might well be approachable young, yet will certainly age in consummate style. The château's own tasting note reads "What more could one possibly want from a wine?" The answer to that is: "Another bottle." Drink 2023-2050.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, March 2017 : 97-98/100

Wow. This is incredibly rich and exotic. Full-bodied, so deep and long. It lasts for minutes. Perfectly polished tannins evidence how texturally focused and supple this is. Decadent and enticing. From organically grown grapes. Super quality of cabernet is on show here. We will see if 2016 is better than 2015.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2017 : 17,5/20

Blackish crimson. Nose that manages to combine flesh and ripeness with freshness. Some restraint here and some very natural flavours. A quiet king. Great appetising wine with the ripeness of the vintage. Very classy. Drink 2024-2042.

Jane Anson, Decanter.com, April 2017 : 97/100

This is gorgeous, extremely ripe, tight, fresh and rich. It has clear, deep tannins and a thrilling tension that slices right through the ripe, autumnal fruit and teases out the finish. There are true layers to the wine, with flavours of cassis, liquorice and charcoal, demonstrating a reserved power that keeps on delivering. The tannin count is at a full 100IPT, a touch higher than in 2010 but they just float along, offering the perfect resistance and interest in your mouth. Technical director Fabien Teitgen used 10% stems in the vinification for 2016, utilising organic winemaking methods. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet franc and 1% Petit Verdot, aged in 60% new oak barrels. 3.6pH. Drinking Window 2027 - 2050.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte-Cru Classé de Graves en rouge-Appellation Pessac Léognan
Château Smith Haut Lafitte

smith_fra Dès1365, la maison noble du Bosq avait choisi ce terroir pour exploiter un vignoble. Puis au XVIIIème siècle l'Ecossais George Smith acheta le domaine, lui accola son nom, bâtit la Chartreuse et exporta vers l'Angleterre sur ses vaisseaux, les barriques déjà renommées.

En1842, M. Duffour-Dubergier, maire de Bordeaux mais aussi viticulteur passionné, hérita de sa mère le château Smith Haut Lafitte et en fit un Grand Cru.

Au début du siècle la Maison Louis Eschenauer se rendit compte de l'exceptionnelle qualité de ce vin et en assura la diffusion, pour finir en1958par acheter la propriété. Depuis cette époque, d'importants investissements ont été effectués, notamment la construction d'un superbe chai souterrain qui permet d'élever en même temps plus de 1 000 barriques.

En1990, Daniel CATHIARD tombe à son tour amoureux du vignoble et s'inscrit dans la prestigieuse lignée des propriétaires avec la ferme intention de continuer à valoriser ce noble cru : sa recherche permanente de l'excellence le conduit à manier harmonieusement les techniques les plus modernes de vinification avec les méthodes traditionnelles : sols vivants, compost organique, retour aux petites cuves en chêne, élevage sur lies en barriques...

Sans aucun doute, l'élégance exemplaire des vins rouges de Smith Haut Lafitte ainsi que le bouquet sophistiqué de son blanc renommé dans le monde entier méritent ces soins quotidiens.

smith_eng The noble Bosq family started growing grapes here as early as 1365. The property was purchased in the 18th century by Scotsman George Smith, who gave the estate its present name. He also built the manor house and exported his – by now famous – wine to England on his own ships.

In 1842, Mr. Duffour-Dubergier, Mayor of Bordeaux and an enthusiastic winegrower, inherited Château Smith Haut Lafitte from his mother and brought the wine up to great growth status.

Impressed by Smith Haut Lafitte's excellent quality, the Louis Eschenauer company distributed the wine all over the world starting in the early 20th century, deciding to buy the estate in 1958. After the Eschenaueur period came to an end, a great deal of money has been invested in the estate, particularly on the construction of a superb underground cellar holding over 1,000 barrels.

In 1990, Daniel Cathiard fell in love with the property and joined the list of prestigious owners, firmly intending to further enhance Smith Haut Lafitte's tradition of excellence. He combined the most modern winemaking techniques and age-old methods: organic compost, small wooden vats, ageing on the lees in barrel, etc.

Famous around the world for its wonderfully elegant red wine and the sophisticated bouquet of its white wine, Smith Haut Lafitte undoubtedly deserves the special care that is lavished on it.
