Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2021 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is beautifully elegant, complex and classy, revealing a lovely multi-layered intensity. There are hints of lemon, tart green apple and slightly zest combined with hints of crunchy berries and a subtle hint of fresh oak, a subtle hint of menthol. The palate is fruity and offers juiciness, freshness, good definition, a wide range of aromas, delicacy and finesse, a tangy structure, a lovely delicate/fine/airy texture, energy, purity and a slight crystalline quality. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy green apple, lemon and, more slightly, yuzu, combined with hints of exotic berries, a subtle hint of fresh pineapple, fresh flowers, a subtle hint of tangy tangerine, a subtle hint of toast, almond, a subtle hint of gunflint, fresh mirabelle plum, verbena, physalis, a subtle hint of smokiness and vanilla. Good length. A discreet hint of positive bitterness on the finish/persistence.
