Smith Haut Lafitte garnered rave reviews in 2016, but we have a special affection for the second label, and at a quarter of the price!
Les Hauts de Smith Red 2016 was created during the blending process of Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte, and was vinified and aged with the same care as the Grand Vin. From the vineyard to the cellar, all the production techniques are identical.
And what is best ~ the wine is ready to enjoy today!
Fresh currant and cherry aromas with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, very tight and firm with silky tannins and a beautiful, long finish. Lively and vivid. Second wine of Château Smith Haut Lafitte. Mostly merlot with some cabernet sauvignon. Drink after 2022.
