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

4/5

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.

4/5

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.
