Rượu vang cao cấp Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte 2007 (Red)
The Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) – 90-92
The Wine Spectator (James Suckling)
Fresh mushroom, berry and currant on the nose and palate. Medium body, good tannins and plenty of
fruit for the vintage. Score range: 88-92
Jancis Robinson Drink 2012-16 – 16/20 / 2015-2023 – 17/20
Purple with a pale rim. Lightweight nose but everything in balance with nice frank fruit and the tannins
are supple and fine. Lively and in the flirtatious, easy idiom of the vintage. Easy and breezy. Not especially
ambitious but a good drink. Congratulations are in order on not fighting the vintage character.
Decanter (Beverley Blanning): Deep purple-red. Sweet cassis and oak nose. Well-structured palate with
refreshing acidity. Brisk, fine-grained tannins. Lovely cassis fruit palate. Mineral, stony finish. For the
The Wine Journal (Neal Martin) – 90-92
This has a very upfront nose black cherries, Doris plum but here infused with a little cedar and there in
the background a touch of mango sorbet. Medium-bodied, very fine tannins and focus – this is Smith
Haut Lafitte showing its refined nature with just a touch of tar on the finish.
Weinwisser (René Gabriel) – 18/20
International Wine Cellar (Steve Tanzer) – 89-91
Medium ruby-red. Black raspberry, smoky dark chocolate and a whiff of game on the nose. Suave, sweet
and consistent, in a rather gentle style for this chateau. Plenty of fruit here, lifted by understated
minerality. Finishes with ripe, fine tannins and subtle persistence. Not a powerful wine but very successful
for the year.
