Chateau Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge 2000
|Producent||Chateau Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge|
|Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot|
One can’t say enough about this winery, which may still fly under the radar of most consumers. The fully mature 2000 displays gorgeous aromas of camphor, lead pencil shavings, unsmoked tobacco, plums, and black currants. With full body, a velvety texture, and beautiful weight, richness, and length, this superb wine should evolve, possibly improve for another 15 years. It’s a beauty
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Very subtle and complex, with tobacco, chocolate and ripe fruit character. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated, silky tannins and a long finish. Refined, yet muscular
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
