Château Smith Haut Lafitte Pessac Leognan 2000
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
|Brand||Château Smith Haut Lafitte|
The Cathiards have made a polished wine with generous fruit. It manages to combine a modern, rich style with a lightness of touch and freshness of fruit which make it instantly attractive.
Very subtle and complex, with tobacco, chocolate and ripe fruit character. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated, silky tannins and a long finish. Refined, yet muscular. Not the 1998, but very good indeed. Best after 2008. 8,330 cases made.
