The Les Hauts de Smith Blanc, 100% Sauvignon, offers lovely varietal nuance throughout. Lime, sage, mint and white pepper are nicely delineated. Brisk and salivating, the Hauts is a pretty white to drink over the next few years, while the flavors retain their energy. The Hauts is a very pretty, aperitif-styled white ideal for raw fish and seafood. As with the red, the Hauts is best described as an attractive, but not especially representative, wine from the property. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

Pure Sauvignon Blanc made from the young vines at Smith-Haut-Lafitte, the 2015 Les Hauts de Smith has a tensile, oyster shell tinged bouquet with yellow flowers and pink grapefruit developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced, tensile with a keen thread of acidity: plenty of citrus lemon, lime and tinned apricot leading to a smooth and refined finish. It just misses a little length, but you won't mind because you'll already be taking the next sip. What a gem of a white Pessac-Léognan - don't overlook this.

Looks quite rich. Rather too sweet on palate entry. But a fine effort with some smokiness. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2016-2018

Made entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, unlike the grand vin, which also includes some Semillon and Sauvignon Gris, this comes from a cool site and it shows in the brightness and focus of the wine. Balanced, tangy, with just a hint of “good” reduction. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2017-2024
