CHÂTEAU SMITH HAUT LAFITTE Pessac-Léognan 2012


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #45

The 2012 Château Smith Haut Lafitte is a completely compelling wine a fantastic achievement in this vintage. This bend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot opens with wonderful aromas of fresh blackberries and dark fruits woven together with roasted coffee, spices and underlying mineral notes. On the palate this is beautifully textured with excellent overall balance and depth. Gorgeous fresh, ripe dark fruits continue to resonate on the long, persistent finish. This will be excellent early on, but also shows the potential to age gracefully for many years. (Best 2016-2030) - September, 2015 (JD)
