Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2014

In bottle tasting note, October 2016

The nose is rich, oaky, and luxurious, with apple-compote and lanolin aromas, and a light smoky character. It’s rich, creamy, and full-bodied, suave and opulent; there’s immense concentration but it’s also spicy and complex with a fine acidic bite on the finish. The oak is well integrated and there is a good length.
Taster: Stephen Brook

En primeur tasting note

Highly successful across both colours in 2014, this has so much character and grip that there is still plenty to love. Firm varietal definition, but with a touch lower acidity than some whites in this vintage as picked late to balance acidity levels. Great persistency, lots of pleasure ahead.
