A beauty of cassis, plum, tobacco leaf and spice, this dark plum/purple-hued, medium to full-bodied 2003 reveals sweet, round, cassis flavors. It has reached full maturity, but shows no signs of decline, and should continue to hold at this plateau for another decade. Although the 2003 is not up to the perfect levels of the 2009 and 2010, it is unquestionably a noteworthy success in a vintage that did not favor Pessac-Leognan.

Tasting note


The 2004 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte is a testament to the elegance and structure that Pessac-Leognan wines are known for. This vintage presents a savory and classic profile, with a deep garnet-red hue that captivates the eye. On the nose, it offers a symphony of cassis, plum, and tobacco leaf, underpinned by earthy and cedary notes. The palate is greeted with a rich tapestry of flavors, including hints of licorice, black cherry, and a touch of oak, reminiscent of a wet forest after rain. The wine's texture is smooth, with dark, spicy fruits that linger on the finish. Crafted with organic and biodynamic principles, the wine has been aged for 18 months in barrels, with 60% being new and produced in-house, ensuring a unique character. This wine is ready to be enjoyed now but promises to maintain its allure for years to come.
