Decanter average score for Château Smith Haut Lafitte (Pessac-Leognan, Grand Cru Classé):
They have so nailed the ‘full extraction without making it obvious’ trick at this property. Clearly high oak and firm tannins but rich, enrobed, black coffee and rich damson fruit, will age well, get really fine tannic structure, but with the slightly glamorous house style, the Mouton of Pessac-Leognan. Lovely. The vibrancy and integrity of the fruit from their biodynamic/organic work in the vineyard is very clear.
