Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is aromatic, fine and elegant. It reveals notes of quince, lemon and discreet notes of exotic fruits, flowers associated with a discreet hint of clementine, racy minerality, peach as well as notes of oak, vanilla and a very discreet hint of almond. The palate is fruity, mineral, suave, elegant, quite straight, nicely fine and offers tension, fat and dynamism. On the palate this wine expresses notes of quince, kumquat and slight notes of lemon associated with a touch of tangerine as well as fine notes of exotic fruit, toasted oak, vanilla and a discreet hint of white fruit and almond. Good length and aromatic persistence. The finish is suave and gourmande. There is a very discreet iodine hint on the finish.
