Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2016 – Pessac-Léognan

Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2016 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity and elegant. It reveals fine notes of lemon and discreet hints of grapefruit associated with slight hints of crunchy white peach, a discreet hint of exotic fruits as well as a subtle hint of racy minerality and an imperceptible hint of beeswax. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful fat, roundness, a good volume, a beautiful finesse, precision as well as elegance. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon and slight notes of clementine associated with discreet hints of pineapple, vine peach as well as a very discreet hint of oak (on the finish) that come to around the fruit. Good length and persistence with a very slight hint of beeswax, sweet spices (on the finish/persistence) as well as with a very discreet hint of hazelnut.
