Les Hauts de Smith 2016  – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity and offers a certain finesse as well as a racy power. It reveals notes of cassis and a slight notes of blueberry associated with a discreet hint of red fruits as well as discreet hints of cardamom, oak and spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a slight tension, a beautiful/bright fruity as well as a good, tight and relatively thick matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy strawberry, blackberry and slight notes of crushed raspberry, cassis associated with a hint of plum, chocolate as well as a discreet hint of coffee and caramelized oak. Tannins are fine and a bit dusty/dry. Good length and aromatic persistence.
