Smith-Haut-Lafitte hit a home run with their red Pessac-Leognan and came very close to perfection with their dry white Graves. Possibly the best dry white the estate has produced since the proprietors, the Cathiards, acquired the property in 1990, this wine exhibits a sensational fragrance of buttered citrus, honeyed melons and a touch of grapefruit, lemon zest and orange rind. It also displays grapefruit on the attack and mid-palate as well as real opulence, terrific acidity and length. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Astonishing! (RP)
Full in the mouth, this is a rich wine with its yellow fruit and buried acidity. It is laden with wood and ripe fruit, and is dense and cushioned. A nutmeg flavor shows through slowly to add to the exotic, opulent aftertaste. (RV)
This is really gorgeous, with creamed Meyer lemon, meringue and lime chiffon notes leading the way, backed by pure salted butter, straw and warm shortbread flavors. Long and rich, yet detailed and focused through the finish. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Sauvignon Gris. Drink now through 2022. (JM)
Rich, full and intense. Creamy but fresh peach and pear notes. Ripe, opulent palate with exuberant fruit. Middling acidity but balanced. Stylish. 18/20 points. (JL)
Very sweet palate entry -- and with acidity too -- so a most beguiling package. Satin texture and very rich and focused. Long. Lovely texture. 17.5/20 points. (JR)
