Smith Haut Lafitte is a blend of 90 % Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris, 5 % Sémillon.
The grapes are hand-picked into small crates and pressed in an oxygen- free environment using inert gas to retain the grapes' aromatic potential, followed by fermentation in French oak barrels (50% new oak) and cold settling.

Ageing 12 months on the lees with bâtonnage (lees stirring) in barrels (50% new + 50% previously used for one vintage) from our own on-site cooperage.

Winemaker Notes

Fabien Teitgen

Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte

by Fabien Teitgen
Straw-yellow colour with green highlights. The nose is relatively discreet at first, with notes of beautifully ripe yellow fruit. Swirling in the glass goes on to reveal a complex aromatic palette of white and yellow fruit (grapefruit, vineyard peach, apricot, citron), white flowers (lime blossom), spices (fresh ginger) and smoky nuances. This wine starts out crisp and delicious on the palate demonstrating a wonderful balance between richness and freshness. The middle palate is rich and displays a lovely velvety texture, culminating in a very long aftertaste that is both fresh and aromatically complex.
