Palate Profile

Made from a blend of wines from Château Smith Haut Lafitte, Les Hauts de Smith are fermented and aged with just as much care as the Grand Vin. From the vineyard to the cellar, exactly the same winemaking techniques are used.

It is a very expressive white with crunchy flavours of white peach and pear. The wine is medium-bodied with a nice acidity that gives it a nice length. It is a very pleasant wine, with juicy yellow fruits and a finish with pink grapefruit and broom flower. Fabien Teitgen, Winemaker.

Critic Awards

This is a really tangy and dense white with sliced white peaches and pears. Medium to full body, lots of fruit and a long, pink-grapefruit aftertaste.

Leaps from the glass with vivacious notions of fresh lime juice, Granny Smith apples and fresh pears plus wafts of white peaches, coriander seed and chalk dust. The medium-bodied palate delivers bags of apple and pear flavors with a racy line and a citrusy lift on the finish.

They have managed to get the Haut de Smith signature in this wine, and for me it is one of the most successful whites of the vintage in terms of accessibility and affordability. An obvious buy for the vintage.
