Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2010

Dryness and climatic freshness = optimal maturity The comparison of climate data from the Smith Haut Lafitte meteorological station reveals: • summer temperature sums close to summer 2009 (962 ° C vs
982 ° C) but much cooler than 2005 (1052 ° C); this climate freshness will strongly influence the balance of our wines by preserving a good level of acidity and a beautiful aromatic freshness
• very low rainfall from March to August 2010 (267mm), drought near 2005 (227mm)
Another characteristic of this vintage2010 is the low temperatures especially during the first three weeks of August, which allowed to preserve a good level of acidity in the berries and at the same time to preserve a beautiful aromatic freshness.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan 2010

As I had it between meals I could not pair it. I thought the Château Smith Haut Lafitte Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan would be perfect for a romantic evening.
This is very pleasing to the eye. Very good aromas of vanilla. This Château Smith Haut Lafitte Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan seemed fairly fresh.

I bought it because it was recommended to me.
I thought that the Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc had a very light colour. Fresh lemon and apple aromas. This is what is called a fleshy wine.

The border colour was almost brown . It smells toasty. The taste of Château Smith Haut Lafitte doesn't go away quick.
I had the pleasure of taking it at a barbecue.
We tasted this wine at a wine tasting.

It would go perfect with blue fish. A red which I enjoyed with my friends.
A Pessac-Léognan with brown edges. Strong aromas of pipe tobacco. A smoky touch remained in my mouth.
