Smith Haut Lafitte 1200cl (Kosher, ex Chateau) 2009
Château Smith Haut Lafitte has a long and prestigious history and, since it was acquired by the Cathiard family in 1990, has garnered a reputation as one of the finest producers in Pessac-Léognan.

Composed of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, it is rich, concentrated, silky and effortlessly harmonious.
This wine was awarded a perfect 100-point score by Robert Parker in The Wine Advocate and was given a drinking window of 2012-2052.
