K&L Notes

95 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2015 Smith Haut-Lafitte has a detailed and focused bouquet with blackberry, cedar and freshly rolled tobacco aromas, unfurling with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, taut and crisp with cedar and graphite. Unashamedly classic in style, it has impressive depth and good grip on the finish. This is destined to give a lot of pleasure. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting." (7/2019)

    **One of the wines of the vintage** Dark and deep robe. Begins with a brooding, massive core of pure dark fruits, blackberry coulis, crème de cassis, black cherry, espresso crema, and graphite. Intense and built with a weighty mouthfeel and firm tannins. For the Cathiards, no detail is overlooked from whole cluster fermentation, gravity flow, optical sorting, and even the state of the art use of satellite imagery to assist in optimal harvest times. Pessac-Léognan made stunning wines in 2015 and Smith Haut Lafitte is one of the finest.

    Smith Haut Lafitte- 63%CS 33M Round and broad with loads of grapey ripe-sweet fruit that coat the entire mouth with hints of licorice and spice. Long finishing and very tasty. Another delicious SHL! 2 Stars!

    The all black label for the 2015 will represent the 25th year anniversary of the Cathiard’s buying the property. The 2015 is dark, black in color with a rich, nearly exotic fruit profile, hints of graphite, cassis, chocolate and Asian spice. The tannins are fleshy and juicy; this is a delicious wine!
