Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Pessac Léognan Blanc 2015, Bordeaux, France

Light straw in color with a golden hue.

Beautiful nose of white flowers, light oak, spices, green and red apples, minerals, vegetables, honey, grapefruits and green tea.

Full bodied, creamy and smooth, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, green apples, grapefruits, bitter herbs, spices, light vegetables, minerals and black pepper.

Long spicy finish with almonds and spices.

This 7 year old is just gorgeous. Drinking beautifully out of the bottle, and better after 20 minutes of airtime.

Showing great balance with a smooth mouthfeel. Powerful, rich and elegant.

This 2015 vintage is showing lots of fruits, with a nice touch of earthiness.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Tasty by itself as a sipping wine. A great wine to share with friends and talk about.

Robert Parker 96 points.
