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

Le vin a une belle couleur jaune pâle avec des reflets verts. Le nez est très expressif avec des notes de fruits blancs (pamplemousse jaune, cédrat, combava, pêche blanche) et des notes de fleurs de tilleul. la bouche est à la fois tendue, fraîche, avec une belle concentration et un très joli volume. Une bouche "très Smith Haut Lafitte" avec un superbe équilibe, matière, onctuosité, fraîcheur et une grande longueur. En finale, on retrouve la complexité aromtaique des fruits blancs, des fleurs, mais aussi des notes d'épices douces, de fumée et une grande minéralité.

Neal Martin,, May 2018: 92-94/100

The 2017 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc was deprived of a hectare parcel of 80-year old Sauvignon that was pulled up last year. It has a focused bouquet with mineral-driven citrus fruit, yellow plum and honeysuckle, the 50% new oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with taut citrus fruit laced with pineapple and tangerine. There is a subtle tropical undercurrent to this Smith Haut-Lafite Blanc. It fans out generously towards the finish with a long and satisfying, lightly honeyed finish. This is a very fine white Smith Haut-Lafitte, already surfeit with pedigree that should age with style and panache. Drink 2021-2035.

James Suckling,, April 2018: 96-97/100

This shows serious density and beauty with fantastic complexity and dimension. Full-bodied yet so fresh and beautiful. Layered and tight at the same time. Exciting to follow this one.

Jane Anson,, April 2018: 96/100

A sophisticated, grown up white with the most beautifully placed savoury white peach flesh, shadowed by lime and tea leaves, and enclosed by slate. The fresh tension stands head and shoulders above many wines in this vintage. It's full of personality, zip and complexity, and is clearly going to age beautifully.

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.
