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

TASTING NOTES:

  • 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

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.

A white for any occassion. I drank it with a business client.
Typical opacity of a Château Smith Haut Lafitte. Clearly noticeable aromas of white fruits. I liked its acidity.
