Very dense and limpid and immediately offering so much more than the other dry whites from this appellation. Smoky minerality and an amazing floral freshness. White blossom? Then it's surprisingly lightweight on the palate (after that dense nose). This really races along. Sort of like a Victorian child with a hoop, to venture in to Tam territory. Already lots of fun to drink, with low astringency and good fruit/acid balance. Though not especially persistent.

Release date: 22/6/2021

Market Insight: There's a big question over Smith Haut's 2019. Its best score ever from Martin and one which put it in the upper echelons from Parker, and yet the price has slipped back by £15. ThisMarket Insight: There's a big question over Smith Haut's 2019. Its best score ever from Martin and one which put it in the upper echelons from Parker, and yet the price has slipped back by £15. This might well be a short term vs long term trend, as we remain optimistic that the masses will develop and awareness of just how much wine you get for your money here, but even benchmarks for the perfect 2009 don't fill me with confidence.

Tasting note: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon, 5% Sauvignon Gris. Fabulously ripe, rich nose of tropical fruits, oak (50% new) and sweet spice. There's a lovely depth of fruit, spice & phenolics on the palate, which is perfectly balanced with tangy acidity. This was very much the standout from the whites we tasted. Delicious and very moreish, even now. It will be interesting to see how this develops but it's so good already. Highly recommended.

But it is worth the patience, delivering almost Burgundy-like citrus fruit mixed with apricot, citrus lemon and crushed stone aromas. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that cuts through the intense notes of citrus peel, lychee and chamomile. Great energy here, and it fans out gloriously toward the finish. Sophisticated and quite delicious. Drinking range: 2024 - 2040 Rating: 92-94 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (May 2021)

That said, we love the wine and it deserves to be selling for more - £50 per bottle really won't be much to ask for the 2020 and there's a lot of fun to be had owning verticals.

Tasting note: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sémillon. Quite reserved on the nose. There's lots of texture and good weight on the palate. Lovely depth of fruit with notes of passionfruit & citrus. Good level of phenolics too and nice acidity. A very well poised wine that should be very approachable in a few years.

With a richerInterestingly, the addition of 20% Semillon to this wine doesn’t really alter the complexity of the flavour here but it certainly adjusts the texture and also the density of fruit. With a richer mid-palate and a less angular finish, this will be a more forward-drinking wine than Les Hauts de Smith Blanc and a slightly fuller-framed wine, too, but it is not quite as refined. It also throws this wine into the main course arena whereas Les Hauts probably favours full-flavoured starters! Rating: 17 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Jun 2021)

TheFragrant white flowers, touches of lime blossom and slate-filled citrus. The acidity is fresh, but this is more about texture, and it is extremely successful. Harvest from 19th to 28th August. The minerality, together with freshly cut rosemary and sage notes, is accentuated as it opens, which is an excellent indicator of how well this wine will age. Deft winemaking, as ever, proving why this is one of Bordeaux's best loved white wines. Tasted twice. Drinking range: 2022 - 2032 Rating: 95 Jane Anson, Decanter (May 2021)
