Les Hauts de Smith white is the second wine of Château Smith Haut Lafitte in Pessac-Léognan. This second varietal wine, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, is one of the best second white wines of the appellation and an excellent value for money. Developed during the blending of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, all the production techniques of the Hauts de Smith are identical to those of the Great Wine, vinified and aged with the same know-how and care. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90-92 points - "The 2019 Les Hauts de Smith Blanc begins a little closed on the nose, soon unfurling to reveal fragrant scents of lime blossoms, lemongrass and shaved ginger with a core of yuzu, fresh apple slices and kumquat plus a waft of dill seed. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with zip and zing, offering a racy acid backbone and a seriously minerally finish."
