Château Smith Haut Lafitte (Pessac-Léognan)
Archetype of the Château Smith Haut Lafitte wines, Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2012 is an expressive wine that, one opened, gives a wide range of scents that includes red fruits and spices such as anise, relish and cinnamon; in mouth, it turns into a fresh, balanced and unctuous wine. Everything thanks to the superb terroir from where the grapes come for their making, a land that has deep roots and that is worked on in a traditional and natural fashion. A whole classic from its land.

Medium dark colour of ripe cherries. Pleasant hints of coffee. This one is softer than 2012.

It has a very nice colour. Fine aromas of violets. It just tasted like grape.

Eye-catching cherry colour with a low layer. Aromas of raisins. Sweet and tasty.
