1997 Smith Haut Lafitte - Wine Advocate # 116, Apr 1998: This winery continues to move from strength to strength under the committed leadership of Florence and Daniel Cathiard. Never a heavyweight or blockbuster, Smith-Haut-Lafitte tends to produce the quintessentially elegant style of Bordeaux, offering an impressive marriage of intense flavors, finesse and complexity. The 1997 is a forward, beautifully made wine that may merit an outstanding score by the time it is bottled. The color is deep ruby/purple, and the wine is expressive aromatically. Chocolate, mineral, creme de cassis, and subtle pain grille notes soar from this wine. Sexy, with low acidity, medium body, and beautifully etched flavors that linger on the palate, this is a totally captivating Smith-Haut-Lafitte that should drink well young, yet last for 15 or more years.
