Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2001 Graves Rouge
Origin: Graves, Bordeaux, France
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon / 40 % Merlot / 10 % Cabernet Franc
The bouquet is already forward, with a range of red fruit and berry aromas, hints of liquorice, and a smoky quality. Well-balanced, concentrated, dense, and very long on the palate. The underlying tannic structure gives the wine substance and ageing potential. Smoky, berry, liquorice, mineral, and aniseed flavours.
