Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc Pessac-Léognan (6 bottle OWC) FUTURES 2023 pre-arrival ETA summer 2026

Expert tasting note:

"The wine has a medium to deep yellow color. Aromas are restrained with some flinty/gunpowder fermentation aromas. The palate is dry, rich & full-bodied with ripe pear fruit, touches of cedary oak & vanilla. Fresh acidity gives the wine nervosity & tension. The alcohol adds a touch of warmth to the finish & the flavours persist well." - 04/24 (ep) DCAMW

Critics' Reviews:

- Jane Anson: 98

  "Distinctive as ever, right at the top of what Pessac Léognan Blanc can deliver. Structured, fleshy white peach and pear, waves of salted cracker and sage, creamy texture, great length, just a brilliant wine. A buy."

- James Suckling: 98

  "Another exceptional vintage for Smith-Haut-Lafite Blanc. It’s so complex and structured, offering a palate that feels similar to the texture of a red wine with a velvety tannin structure. There’s a lot going on here. Spice, crushed seashell and citrus blossom. Salty, too. Weightless and so long. 90% sauvignon blanc, 5% sauvignon gris and 5% semillon."

- Wine Advocate: 96

  "Aromas of white fruits, crisp orchard fruits, spices, smoke, spring flowers and pear introduce the 2023 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, a medium to full-bodied, layered and textured wine with a fleshy core of fruit and racy acids, concluding with a mineral, fresh and long finish highlighted by delicate notes of thyme and garrigue. Comprising 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Gris and matured in 50% new oak, this blend is among the finest white wines produced at this address."
