Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc Grand Vin de Graves 2014 Pessac-Léognan, France

This is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc from Pessac-Léognan. Crisp and refreshing with nice weight and complexity.

Nose is gentle and elegant. The palate is crisp, dry and rich.

Showing citrus, lemons, spices, light wood, green apples, grapefruits and minerals.

Nice length on the finish with limes and minerals.

A Good quality wine. Definitely my favorite white Bordeaux so far.

This 5 year old is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to evolve in the next 5 years.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and show more complexity.

Robert Parker 93 points. 94 points Wine Spectator.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Gris.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$95.
