Les Hauts de Smith Blanc 2020
Yield : 29hl/ha before production was divided into three wines: Château Smith Haut Lafitte, Les Hauts de Smith, and Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte. Fermentation : The grapes are hand-picked into small crates and pressed in an oxygen-free environment using inert gas to retain the grapes' aromatic potential, followed by fermentation in French oak barrels and cold settling. Ageing : 10 months on the lees in barrel (50% new oak) from the estate's own cooperage.
Fabien Teitgen’s comments, Winemaker: It is a very expressive white with crunchy flavours of white peach and pear. The wine is medium-bodied with a nice acidity that gives it a nice length. It is a very pleasant wine, with juicy yellow fruits and a finish with pink grapefruit and broom flower.
