Ridiculous good. On the nose; honeysuckle, beeswax, oily, marmalade, dry pineapple, stone fruits, caramel apple, orange rind, lime, lemon, light chalky minerals, yellow lilies and spring flowers. The body is full & thick. The structure, tension, length and balance are near its peak. honeysuckle, beeswax, oily, marmalade, dry pineapple, stone fruits, caramel apple, orange rind, lime, lemon, light chalky minerals, yellow lilies and spring flowers. The acidity is round and perfect. The long finish is; oily & waxy, rich, lush, elegant and persistent for minutes. Photos of, Chateau Smith-Haut Lafite, their beautiful Hotel (the best place to stay in the Left-bank if price is no object), their newer concrete tanks (back to concrete) and beautiful barrel room.

Although only 5% Semillon, that varietal has a strong impact here, giving a touch of sweetness and extra volume. With some air, this delicate aromas of dried herbs and spice. The inner mouth perfume really explides on the finish.

Tight, nervous, not as tropical as I remember. Great wine, very interesting and complex.

What a beauty. Full bodied pear and floral notes with enough acidity to keep coming back for another sip. And another...

Open and flattering. Floral, oaky, tropical. No depth, lots of concentration. Drink now.
