Château Smith Haut Lafitte red 2016: a powerful and elegant Pessac-Léognan

A Cru Classé of Graves produced in the Pessac-Léognan appellation, Château Smith Haut Lafitte produces its red wine in a vineyard of 67 hectares. Aged 38 years, on average, the vines are planted on soils made up of Günzian gravel. Each batch is matured for 18 months in oak barrels (60% in new barrels) before blending. The Château Smith Haut Lafitte red 2016 blends 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

The Château Smith Haut Lafitte rouge 2016 displays a dark red color, almost black. Soft and elegant, the nose open up to fragrances of black fruits (blackberries, black cherries) and red fruits (raspberries), along with subtle and complex floral, spicy, aniseed, toasted (smoke) and mineral notes (flint). This powerful and elegant wine reveals a formidable balance on the palate, showing itself to be dense, concentrated, soft, unctuous and with a superb texture.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot and matured in 60% new oak for 18 months, the 2016 Smith Haut Lafitte has a very deep garnet-purple color, opening with sensuous scents of warm black cherries, blackberry pie, star anise and fragrant lilacs with hints of chocolate box, cigar box and pencil lead plus wafts of truffles and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, rich and seductive, it completely fills the palate with perfumed black berry preserves and superbly plush tannins, finishing epically long and beautifully layered.
