  • Description

    Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Sémillon make up this fine white wine which is made for ageing. It puts on a show of flavours with yellow fruits, white flowers and citrus fruits introducing a palate that is both dense and taut, velvety and mineral. How is it made? Once harvested by hand, the grapes are fermented in French oak barrels and aged on their lees again in barrels (50% new wood), interupted by lee stiring.

    Wine Advocate : “Aromas of white fruits, crisp orchard fruits, spices, smoke, spring flowers and pear introduce the 2023 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, a medium to full-bodied, layered and textured wine with a fleshy core of fruit and racy acids, concluding with a mineral, fresh and long finish highlighted by delicate notes of thyme and garrigue. Comprising 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Gris and matured in 50% new oak, this blend is among the finest white wines produced at this address.”

    James Suckling : “Another exceptional vintage for Smith-Haut-Lafite Blanc. It’s so complex and structured, offering a palate that feels similar to the texture of a red wine with a velvety tannin structure. There’s a lot going on here. Spice, crushed seashell and citrus blossom. Salty, too. Weightless and so long. 90% sauvignon blanc, 5% sauvignon gris and 5% semillon.”
