Smith Haut Lafitte
2009 Triple Magnum
Tasting Note :
An opaque purple colour is followed by an explosive nose of graphite, black currants, licorice, incense, and a hint of black tea.
The wine hits the palate with extraordinary density, unctuosity, and richness, yet it never comes across as a heavy or overbearing.
Sensational concentration as well as remarkable purity vintage, this brilliant wine possesses the high, but sweet tannins that are an hallmark of the vintage.
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.
