Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc Pessac-Leognan 2003
- Show All (67)
Decanted for a few hours. Crazy nose - lambic beer! Some graphite and bacon also. Medium+ body. Smooth. Medium fruit - blueberry. Pepper. Juicy. Very interesting. $72
a gorgeous Bordeaux that will benefit from 4-5 years of quite rest. very elegant tannins with a subdued acidity. macerated black fruit mingles with layers of dark roast coffee, mocha and cream. the oak is incredibly integrated. after few hours of decanting notes of dry flowers and spice box will emerge and overwhelm your olfaction. the finish is rich and exotic.
