This sensational, opaque blue/purple-colored wine from Smith Haut Lafitte has a gorgeous floral nose with notes of graphite, blueberries, blackberries, and cassis that jump from the glass of this inky, very dense, yet strikingly pure wine. Light on its feet despite its stunning concentration and multi-layered mouthfeel, this wine has fabulous intensity, richness and length. Quite impressive, and still incredibly youthful, this is a superstar of the vintage, and capable of lasting another 25-30 years.

Tasting note


The 2005 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte is a testament to the grandeur of Pessac-Leognan terroir. This biodynamic wine, with its deep ruby-red hue and nearly opaque core, exudes a classic claret nose of lean, leafy cassis and clean dark fruits. The palate is greeted with very angular tannins and a clean acidity that ensures the fruit remains vibrant. With a balanced alcohol content, the wine's structure is poised to open out beautifully with time. Expect a symphony of flavors including coffee, smoke, baked cherries, and a hint of thyme. Decanting for two hours will unveil its round textures and freshness, making it an ideal companion to grilled red meats or a sumptuous mushroom risotto.
