Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Bordeaux wine

Smith Haut Lafitte, situated in the Graves' elite sub-appellation (the Pessac-Léognan), offers scintillating quality and fantastic value-for-money from a left bank château, and its wines (and owners) are some of the most charming in all Bordeaux.

Smith Haut Lafitte is owned by the amiable ex-Olympic skier Daniel Cathiard and his wife Florence, who have transformed the property and the quality of the wines beyond recognition since 1990. Smith-Haut-Lafitte is not classified as organic, but its practices are very much in the natural vein - they even make their own organic compost. The wine is aged in mature and new oak barrels (made and toasted at the château), and the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    "Explosive and powerful in the glass, the 2015 Smith Haut Lafitte is going to need time to come into its own. Black cherry, gravel, smoke, bittersweet chocolate, leather, licorice and savory herbs effortlessly fill out the wine's ample frame.” Antonio Galloni
