The château overlooks the vines from atop a hill (or “la fitte” in local dialect) composed of river stones and semi-precious pebbles deposited by the Garonne millions of years ago.

Consisting of günz gravel, Smith Haut Lafitte’s terroir has two astonishing features: superb natural drainage forcing the vine roots to sink deep into the soil in order to find nourishment, and a “mirror effect” of the sun’s rays reflected by the gravelly soil.

What the critics say:

97+/100Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Blanc prances out of the glass with pretty, cheerful scents of fresh green apples, lemongrass, lime leaves and white peaches plus spicy touches of fresh ginger, coriander seed and white pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate has fantastic intensity and tension, with a racy backbone cutting through the tightly knit citrus and spice layers, finishing long and mineral laced."

97/100James Suckling

"This is fabulous white with sliced apples, pears, stones, flint and light cream. Really incredible. Full-bodied, yet so tight and polished with superb finesse and density at the same time. A fantastic Smith white. Drink or hold."
