The estateLocated in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation and dating back to 1365, Château Smith Haut-Lafitte is one of the oldest estates in Bordeaux. This magnificent property of Grâces has entered a new era in its history, following its acquisition by Daniel and Florence Cathiard in 1990. The Cathiards manage Château Smith Haut Laffite with great passion and ambition, having elevated the property to the rank of the most beautiful properties of Graves with wines renowned worldwide for their class and style, both in red and in white.

The tastingTasted en primeur, the Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2019 white is a balanced wine, characteristic of Smith Haut Lafitte and its terroir. The pale yellow colour suggests the youth of the wine. The expressive nose reveals floral and spicy notes on a complex bouquet. On the palate, the attack is tense. The Smith Haut Lafitte white 2019 is polished by a nice acidity and offers a texture of great softness. This magnificent 2019 vintage from Château Smith Haut Laffite will seduce the taster with its aromatic expression, its complexity and its superb acidity-concentration balance.
