DescriptionCHATEAU SMITH HAUT LAFITTE BLANC (PESSAC)
This wine is offered on a Futures Basis and not available for immediate shipment.
The 2021 Smith Haut Lafitte is fabulous. Rich and explosive in the glass, the 2021 possesses tremendous intensity, much of that the result of low yields of just 20-22 hectoliters per hectare, about half of what is typical here. The tannins are a bit firm today, but there appears to be more than enough fruit behind all of that structure. Vivid aromatics further suggest all the 2021 needs is time. I can't wait to see how it ages. 95-97pts., Antonio Galloni, Vinous
