2012 Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc (Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon)


  • View: 2012 Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc offers a vibrant bright, pale yellow with green hue.
  • Nose: The first nose, fairly quiet, offers delicate notes of white fruits and flowers. Through aeration nose notes to be very expressive, complex, rich, with an explosion of yellow fruit, peach, apricot, mango, citrus (grapefruit), sweet spices, star anise open and even a hint of caramel. This nose, both ripe and refreshing, perfectly reflects the good weather at the end of the ripening of the grapes.
  • Mouth: On the palate, the subtle balance between acidity and freshness of fruit maturity appears clearly to give the wine a harmony of maturity, wealth, power and vivacity.

Grapes: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris, and 5% Sémillon

Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2012

2012: A delicate climatology: "a very sharp vintage in terms of balance soil - plant" -Warm and rainy winter, cold in early February then significant rise in temperatures to March
-Earning early followed by a cold and wet month of April leading to a stop of growth of the vine
- Very favorable climatic conditions from May to September: one of the driest periods of the past decade with sums of temperatures close to 2009 and 2005
- Heterogeneous fermentation and superb conditions for ripening grapes in August and September
-September and October on the wire: great reactivity required for qualitative grape harvests.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2012

Pale color, with green highlights fruity nose, fresh and minty Jolie into silky, then the wine develops stroking with taste, shine in the fruit, and a woody base underlying, but never tannic or dry, Fondant or oxidized, original, the wine finishes long and sappy with taste and splendor This is very good

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.

Good to take with fish. I was invited by a friend to try this Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc.
The Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc has a light yellow colour with bright highlights. Perfume of white flowers: jasmine, lilies .... An oil-textured wine.
