About the producer: Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Scotsman George Smith acquired this property in Pessac Leognan in the eighteen century and, named it Smith Haut Lafitte. After successive ownerships, the domaine is owned today by the Cathiard family, who combined the most modern winemaking techniques with traditional method, using organic compost, slow natural fermentation of the grapes, small wooden vats and ageing on the lees in barrel. The estate has excelled even in the most troublesome of vintages, due to a ruthless selection process, a commitment to quality and the long term vision for the estate. View our selection.
