Château Smith Haut Lafitte - Pessac-Léognan Red 2011

A characteristic climatology: "summer in spring, autumn in summer and summer in autumn". Winter low in precipitation, cold temperatures. Significant rise in temperatures in February, leading to a very early bud break. Spring under exceptional conditions: drought and very high temperatures accelerating the rate of development of the vine. It was a break with fresh weather and welcome rains to start a qualitative maturation that was long-lasting and allowed the preservation of good acidities. 60% new barrels

Ruby-red.  Enticing perfume of blackberry, violet, aromatic herbs and minerals.  Clean, fresh and lively on the palate, showing noteworthy precision to the savory dark berry and herb flavors.  Finishes pure and moderately long, with less oak showing than usual for this wine.  Should offer early accessibility but has the stuffing to improve over the next decade.

The grand vin, the 2011 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is another great successes (and that’s saying something after the remarkable duo of 2009 and 2010 as well as the brilliant 2008). This wine exhibits a dense purple color along with a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, mulberries, licorice and subtle background oak. Full-bodied with silky tannins, nicely integrated acidity, wood and alcohol, a multilayered mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts 45 seconds, this brilliant wine should drink well for 15-20 years.

One of the best run estates in Bordeaux, Smith-Haut-Lafitte’s owners, the Cathiard family, has produced a beautiful second wine in 2011.

A wine that has a beautiful depth of fruit, with currants, minerals and dried flowers on the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied, with super-integrated tannins that last for minutes. This is muscular yet polished. Extremely well done for the vintage. Better in 2017.

Lush fig, boysenberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes are interspersed with lively anise, singed apple wood and fruitcake details. A tarry echo hangs in the background on the finish. Shows impressive depth and ripeness for the vintage. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Fabien Teitgen, le directeur, considère que l'été frais a sauvé le millésime! "Sans cela, nous nous erions retrouvés dans une situation plus délicate qu'en 2003. Les écarts de maturité sur une même grappe demandaient une attention particulière dans les tris". En raison de l'échaudage du printemps, les cabernet-sauvignon (55%) sont moins représentés, mais compensés par 8% de cabernet franc, ce qui explique une certaine rigueur dans les tanins. Le vin s'impose par une structure ample et une finale harmonieuse. Un beau Smith de caractère.

Opaque purple-ruby. Superripe aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and graphite. Bright, fresh and juicy, with sneaky concentration to the black fruit and mineral flavors. The finish is long and pure, with enticing notes of minerals and cedar. A more refined Smith Haut Lafitte than usual, very well done.

Well-extracted cassis fruit, slight gamey edge that adds character, firm fruit with a tobacco leaf lift. An elegantly concentrated palate with a good future. Drink 2015-2030.

An impressive effort, this 2011 exhibits a dense saturated ruby/purple color along with lots of graphite, black currant and camphor notes, medium to full body, and surprising depth, richness and length. Tannins are present, but they are relatively sweet and unobtrusive. A crisp character gives the wine vibrancy as well as impressive delineation. It should drink well for 15+ years.

Tiefs Purpur, satt in der Mitte, Granatschimmer am Rand. Süsses elegantes Bouquet, schöne Kirschentöne, etwas Cassis und auch florale Noten, die Barriques vermitteln einen Hauch Kokos und Milchkaffee im zweiten Nasenansatz. Recht charmanter Gaumen, viel Saft, souplesse in den feinen Tanninen zeigend, wunderbare Balance, schon fast milchiges Finale mit viel Rückaromatik. Modern vinifiziert bei guter Ausgangslage, dem Jahrgang sehr gut angepasst. 2017-2043

From an assemblage of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and a drop of Petit Verdot, the wine will be aged in 60% new oak. This is a deep, dark-colored Pessac Leognan with a perfume offering licorice, coffee, earth and jammy black raspberry. Rich, full-bodied, plush and intense, the wine ends with a fresh, long, floral and sweet finish with spice, espresso and black cherry. 92-94 Pts

The Smith Haut Lafitte is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc aged in 60% new oak. The harvest (for the red) was between 15th September and finishing with the Cabernet Sauvignon and 30th September and it represents 39% of the crop. It has a lifted bouquet with ripe blackberry, cassis, black olive and fruits de mer with fine delineation. With continued aeration there is just a hint of violet. The palate is beautiful, very dense and concentrated with superb delineation and wonderful purity and minerality towards the finish. It is very long in the mouth. Excellent. N.B. This does not include the full vin de presse. Tasted April 2012

A lovely white from Smith Haut Lafitte with detailed stone fruits and generous mid palate. There is a bit less concentration here than in previous few years of their whites but nonetheless balanced, fresh and lively. An elegant white wine with good length.

Deep black cherry colour. Ripe, even minty, dark fruit. Plenty of sweet oak too. Upright, firm and tightly structured, with a strong graphite core and just enough fruit. No lack of freshness but it is a little drying now. Hope it will come round. (JH) (16,5+ points)

Offers pure, driven plum, cassis and black cherry notes inlaid with graphite and roasted wood spice. Dense without being overextracted. Very sleek. Rock-solid.—J.M.

This wine has density, with very dry, massive tannins. This is a wine for long-term aging; it has a solid texture, with its fruit well buried.—R.V

Perfumed and very pretty with delicate spices, berries and flowers. Medium to full body, with ultra fine tannins and a lovely finish. Balanced and delicious. Not a big wine but shows finesse.
