The quality has changed completely in recent years and has been at the top of the Pessac ever since. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. This deep ruby to crimson Smith Haut Lafitte is a beautiful wine full of tension and symmetry, finesse and elegance, revealing classic aromas of blackcurrant, new wood and burnt earth. The clean, medium-heavy, reserved, moderate, graceful 1998 offers impressive overall harmony and well-integrated tannins. Expected maturity now until 2028.
