Smith Haut Lafitte
Tasting Note :
A sensational effort, and undeniably the finest wine to ever emerge from this estate, the opaque purplecolored 2000 offers scents of tobacco, camphor, graphite, crème de cassis, and licorice. This full-bodied, concentrated effort possesses low acidity, a multilayered texture, tremendous intensity of flavour, and a persistent finish with considerable ripe, well-integrated tannin. This is a brilliant example of equilibrium and finesse allied to considerable power and flavor
Serving Suggestion :
To be paired with any full-flavoured meat dish such as smoky lamb short ribs or braised lamb shanks.
The wine also goes wonderfully with a hot serving of rich cassoulet on a cold night.
