Archetype of the Château Smith Haut Lafitte wines, Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2016 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.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2016

2016 - Non contractual picture. Smith Haut Lafitte 2016 is a very dark wine red, almost black. The nose shows a bouquet of black fruit and very fresh red fruit. After swirling, the nose is complex with notes of spice, cedar, licorice combined with violets and a flinty touch. The palate is fresh, dynamic, powerful, dense, sleek. The tannins are concentrated, creamy and sweet. They provide a great length and a nice texture to this wine. On the palate crisp and ripe fruit accompanied by a spicy dimension of citron, of clove and a very nice finish with floral and mineral notes. The luxury label in 2015 vintage, gold on black, has been redesigned to celebrate a double anniversary: ​​the 25th vintage of Cathiards and 650 years of Smith Haut Lafitte (created in 1365). She adorns bottles of red and white Smith Smith of fleeting way until the next vintage. Domain Château Smith Haut Lafitte: From 1365, the noble house of Bosq chose this land to operate a vineyard. Then in the eighteenth century Scotsman George Smith bought the estate, accola his name, built Chartreuse and exported to England on its vessels, already renowned barrels. In 1842, Mr. Duffour-Dubergier, mayor of Bordeaux but also passionate winegrower, inherited from his mother the Château Smith Haut Lafitte and made a Grand Cru. Early in the century Maison Louis Eschenauer realized the exceptional quality of this wine and assured distribution, to end in 1958 by buying the property. Since that time, significant investments have been made, including the construction of a superb underground cellar that can raise together over 1000 barrels. In 1990, Daniel CATHIARD falls in love with his tour of vineyards and is part of the prestigious line owners with the intention to continue to promote this noble thought: his permanent quest for excellence led him to seamlessly handle the most technical modern winemaking with traditional methods: living soil, organic compost, return to small oak vats, aging on lees in ... undoubtedly, the elegant red wines of Smith Haut Lafitte and the sophisticated bouquet of its renowned white worldwide deserve these daily care.
