2013 Château Smith Haut Lafitte Pessac-Léognan Bordeaux White

St Barth’s Wine

In the 14th century, Verrier du Dubosc signed the first recorded deeds for this estate including a few vines. George Smith, a Scottish wine merchant, acquired the property in the mid-18th century and named it after himself. Lodi Martin Duffour-Dubergier, Mayor of Bordeaux and signer of the official 1855 classification, acquired the estate in 1842 and brought it up to Grand Cru Exceptionnel level. Florence and Daniel Cathiard fell in love with Château Smith Haut Lafitte in 1990 and acquired it with the firm intention of perpetuating the wine’s tradition of excellence. Grapes Blend: 90 % Sauvignon blanc 5 % Sauvignon Gris 5 % Semillon.

Bright, vibrant pale yellow color with a green hue. The first nose, quite expressive, is dominated by white fruits and citrus fruits, lemon, yellow grapefruit. Through swirling it, the wine opens up and more complex notes of white flowers, white fruits, pear, white peach, appear along with aromas of spices and hints of toastiness. The mouth is marked by a very beautiful mineral tension, a great acidity, well-balanced by a very refreshing and sharp matter; the wine is structured by its tension and minerality, fresh and very long. The aroma complexity on the palate reflects the first aromas perceived with white fruits, white flowers, sweet spices, very fresh notes and a beautiful aroma delicacy. The finale let appear a hint of smoke so characteristic of the gravel terroir.
