Winemaker Notes

Fabien Teitgen

Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte

by Fabien Teitgen
The wine has a very deep, intense black colour. The nose is already expressive with a mix of red and black fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry) and spices, characteristic of perfectly ripe grapes. Swirling in the glass reveals considerable complexity with delicate floral notes, sweet spices, and gunflint. The wine starts out broad-based, concentrated, and powerful on the palate. The tannin is rich without compromising on freshness, balance, and delicate flavours. The expression "an iron fist in a velvet glove" perfectly sums up this wine!
