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
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.
2010: A qualitative home run, right up there with the profound 2005 and more opulent 2009, Smith-Haut-Lafitte has turned in a remarkable performance in this vintage, but then again, so have many other chateaux. A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Smith-Haut-Lafitte 1500ml
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
This is even better than the 2007, which was great. I love the racy and complexity to this young white with honey, apple pie, tropical fruits and hints of vanilla cream. It's full and very rich yet balanced and structured. Lovely backbone of bright a... James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc 750ml
64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot formed the assemblage. Deeply colored and filled with smoke, cassis, jam and licorice coated dark berry aromas, this rich, juicy, concentrated wine ends with a long... Jeff Leve. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Smith-Haut-Lafitte 6000ml
The style of our red wine is very classic, with a neat expression of our terrior of Gnzian Gravels, which gives the wine some unique smoky notes. We look for elegance and structure, freshness and complexity, balance and richness. The majority of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in our vineyard, harvested at full maturity and vinified in the softest way to only extract the silkiest tannins, unveils after a few years all its potential, which we can then enjoy during long years. The other varietals grown on the estate add to the Cabernet Sauvignon their own flavors and take part to the typical harmony of our Cru Classe de Graves.
