THE NOBLE BOSQ FAMILY STARTED GROWING GRAPES HERE AS EARLY AS 1365. THE PROPERTY WAS PURCHASED IN THE 18TH CENTURY BY SCOTSMAN GEORGE SMITH, WHO GAVE THE ESTATE ITS PRESENT NAME. HE ALSO BUILT THE MANOR HOUSE AND EXPORTED HIS - BY NOW FAMOUS - WINE TO ENGLAND ON HIS OWN SHIPS. IN 1842, MR. DUFFOUR-DUBERGIER, MAYOR OF BORDEAUX , INHERITED THE ESTATE FROM HIS MOTHER, AND TRANSFORMED IT INTO A GRAND CRU. IMPRESSED BY SMITH HAUT LAFITTE'S EXCELLENT QUALITY, THE LOUS ESCHENAUER COMPANY DISTRIBUTED THE WINE ALL OVER THE WORLD STARTING IN EARLY 20TH CENTURY, DECIDING TO BUY THE ESTATE IN 1958. IN 1990, DANIEL CHATIARD FELL IN LOVE WITHE THE PROPERTY AND JOINED THE LIST OF PRESTIGIOUS OWNERS, FIRMLY INTENDING TO FURTHER ENHANCE SMITH HAUT LAFITTE'S TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE. – Description from AlexJelena
