This Château SmithHaut Lafitte sports a lovely, deep-red colour with glints of darkpurple. The complex nose reveals very fresh notes of ripe red fruits(raspberry, cherry), liquorice and spices. On the palate, the wine is balanced,with good concentration. It displays lovely substance and maturity, with adelicate but firm tannic structure. A Pessac-Léognan with solid potential!
