    The white wine of Smith Haut Lafitte has built up a solid reputation over the last 10 years, even if it is not a grand cru classé (but Haut-Brion blanc and Pape-Clément blanc are not either). A happy marriage of wood and fruit, it always delivers a beautiful aromatic complexity, from lime blossom to citrus, and a lively, rich and fine structure.

    Rated 94/100 by Neal Martin « There is a lot of energy in this 2017 that actually renders it quite approachable, though I would prefer to leave bottles down in the cellar for several years. » (Feb. 2020)

    Rated 97/100 by Antonio Galloni « A wine of tremendous character and balance, the 2017 is flat-out gorgeous and very clearly one of the wines of the year. » (March 2020)

    Rated 95/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin « Minutieux à l’attaque, juteux en milieu de bouche et même gras, avec du corps, le vin se développe puissant, long, avec du relief et beaucoup de saveurs dans la persistance. C’est très bon. » (Oct. 2020)
