Description

Are octocentanarian hipsters a thing? Because Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte may have 800 years of winemaking tradition behind it -- but the wines have a fraîcheur that suggests they're not hidebound creatures of tradition but rather excited to be alive, drinking juice as joyous as this. Their renowned Bordeaux Blanc will set you back a pretty penny... but this, their second label, can be had for a fraction of that, and is simply superb: rich with notes of waxed pear, the palate is balanced between fresh acidity and creamy texture (most somms guess that there's Semillon in the blend, the texture is so waxy and round!). Unlike any SB you've ever had!
