Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2012 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2012 offers a vibrant bright, pale yellow with green hue.
  • Nose: The first nose, fairly quiet, offers delicate notes of white fruits and flowers. Through aeration nose notes to be very expressive, complex, rich, with an explosion of yellow fruit, peach, apricot, mango, citrus (grapefruit), sweet spices, star anise open and even a hint of caramel. This nose, both ripe and refreshing, perfectly reflects the good weather at the end of the ripening of the grapes.
  • Mouth: On the palate, the subtle balance between acidity and freshness of fruit maturity appears clearly to give the wine a harmony of maturity, wealth, power and vivacity.

Grapes: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris, and 5% Sémillon

Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2012

2012: A delicate climatology: "a very sharp vintage in terms of balance soil - plant" -Warm and rainy winter, cold in early February then significant rise in temperatures to March
-Earning early followed by a cold and wet month of April leading to a stop of growth of the vine
- Very favorable climatic conditions from May to September: one of the driest periods of the past decade with sums of temperatures close to 2009 and 2005
- Heterogeneous fermentation and superb conditions for ripening grapes in August and September
-September and October on the wire: great reactivity required for qualitative grape harvests.

Pale color, with green highlights fruity nose, fresh and minty Jolie into silky, then the wine develops stroking with taste, shine in the fruit, and a woody base underlying, but never tannic or dry, Fondant or oxidized, original, the wine finishes long and sappy with taste and splendor This is very good

Good on nose with a predominance of jasmine. An unpretentious, cool, nice, rich white.
Of 2016, it is the best I've tasted until now.

I would not recommend to drink it alone. It's best when paired. My best friend from Pessac-Léognan recommended it to me .
Nice colour. Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc recalls white fruit. The best aftertaste of Pessac-Léognan.
