2018 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc (750ml) »FUTURES«

Sauvignon Blanc from Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France

2018 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc

Dried apple, apricot, grapefruit zest, flint and a hint of hay on the nose. It’s full-bodied with crisp acidity and tight, concentrated layers of fresh and dried fruit. Incredible depth and focus. Even better from 2022.

98 points, James Suckling (Mar 2021)

This has a broad mix of lemon peel, gooseberry, tarragon and star fruit flavors that are holding back a bit for now, while wet straw, macadamia nut and shortbread accents emerge through the finish. Quite rich in feel throughout, but has the underlying zip and cut for balance. Seriously long too. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Sauvignon Gris. Best from 2022 through 2030. 2,083 cases made.
