Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2009

The noble Bosq family started growing grapes in 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 1000 barrels.

Château Smith Haut Lafite 2009

At the sight is has a bright yellow colour. Honeyed aromas. I liked its acidity.
It did not match with our dinner.
I drank with my best friend.
