2012 Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

Meticulous attention to detail throughout the growing season and double the usual number of pickers and sorters at harvest time have resulted in what must be one of the best Pessacs in 2012. Comprising 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. The nose is open and expressive with attractive floral components whilst the palate is initially lush, plummy and impressively weighted. Ripe, structural tannins coat the mouth leading to a long, savoury finish.
