Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2016
Château Smith Haut Laffite ‘Blanc’ £875.00 IB per case or £437.50 IB per case of six however, I cannot see a compelling reason to buy this as the 2015 is better and considerably cheaper...
A dense and powerful white with wonderful depth and phenolic tension. Shows very pretty sliced-apple, lemon and pear character. Excellent finish. 90% sauvignon blanc with the rest semillon and sauvignon gris. Excellent follow-up to the 2015.
Heady, spicy, deep flavoured and a great exhibition of what makes excellent dry white bordeaux distinctive and delicious. Lanolin and rich lemon syrup notes but very fresh and long on the finish. Perhaps not the most intense vintage of this wine but I would happily drink this now.
