2010 Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

2010 Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

"This is an extraordinary performance once again from the Cathiard family, the proprietors of Smith-Haut-Lafitte. They think the 2010 is even better than the 2009. (I disagree, but only slightly.) This wine has laser-like definition in its an remarkable nose of a subtle charcoal fire interwoven with spring flowers, creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur and spicy wood. Full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, long, rich and moderately tannic, this wine is set for an exceptionally long life of 30-40 years but can be drunk in 5-7. " 98+ points, Robert Parker
