Château Smith Haut-Lafitte 2018

Bordeaux - Pessac-Leognan - Cru Classé - Red Wine -

In this 2018 vintage Chateau Smith Haut signs a very beautiful vintage.
The Merlots collected to perfect maturity bring substance and power to the wine, the Cabernets length and freshness.
The wine is intense red, ruby.
The nose is expressive with aromas of red fruits (cherry, raspberry), followed by spices (licorice) and toasted, woody;
The palate is ample, powerful, dense and concentrated with great length. The finish in the mouth is persistent, very long, with very silky tannins.

Blend of the 2018 vintage: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

Ageing: 18 months in barrels (60% new barrels made in the Château's cooperage).

2018 Vintage reviews: 

Wine Advocate : 97-99+/100
"Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aging in 60% new barriques, the very deep purple-black colored 2018 Smith Haut Lafitte is a little shy to begin. With coaxing, it very slowly unfurls to reveal a heart-stopping perfume of violets, red roses, kirsch, black cherries and redcurrant jelly, before giving way to a profound core of warm blackcurrants, blackberry preserves, molten licorice and cinnamon stick with nuances of dried mint, orange blossoms (yes!) and cloves. Full-bodied, the fruit does veritable pirouettes on your palate, both elegant and powerful in its expression, coating the mouth with densely packed red and black fruits while revealing tons of mineral, floral and savory sparks, framed by exquisitely fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long."

Wine Spectator : 95-98/100

J. Suckling : 98-99/100
"This is incredibly complex with hazelnut, currant, berry and dried-flower character. The impression of a vat of fermenting cabernet. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a long, soft and silky finish. Shows the essence of the fruit here. Fascinating. Layered and complex."

Decanter : 98/100

Quarin : 95/100

Bettane et Desseauve : 17,5-18/20
