This crackles with thyme and savory notes offsetting the powerful core of lemon curd white peach and fennel. The long pure finish has a stony thread and extra waves of fruit and herb. Drink now through 2019. -JM Wine Spectator.

90% sauvignon blanc 5% sauvignon gris and 5% semillon. Aged in 50% new French oak.Pale gold hue.Aromas of salted Irish butter and buttered popcorn lead into mango fruit notes. The popcorn notes carry through to the medium-to-full bodiedpalate where it picks up characteristics of almond beeswax and a briny minerality. The finish displays fresh pineapple that lasts close to a minute. Though thee acidity is cutting and bracing at the moment it will harmonize with another two years in the cellar

Another phenomenal wine from the Cathiards, this rich 2010 exhibits lemon custard, melon, tropical fruit and a touch of smoky oak. It should last 20+ years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc 750ml

A rich wine, full-bodied in character, the acidity hiding behind the ripe fruits. Concentrated and structured, the spice coming through to dominate. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc 750ml

A step ahead of the pack, with a lovely caressed feel and a toasted macadamia nut frame to the large core of yellow plum, straw and verbena notes. Offers a gorgeous feel on the finish. Long. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc 750ml

This is an extraordinary performance once again from the Cathiard family, the proprietors of Smith-Haut-Lafitte. They think the 2010 is even better than the 2009. (I disagree, but only slightly.) This wine has laser-like definition in its an remarkable nose of a subtle charcoal fire interwoven with spring flowers, creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur and spicy wood. Full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, long, rich and moderately tannic, this wine is set for an exceptionally long life of 30–40 years but can be drunk in 5–7.

Gorgeous, with alluring black tea and warm ganache notes that unfurl slowly, while the core of intense steeped plum, anise, blackberry compote and black currant confiture sits patiently in reserve. The beautiful loam-, tobacco- and tar-filled finish displays major heft, but also remarkable polish and grace. Should age very slowly. Best from 2018 through 2035.
