Average critic rating : 89.25 points



The Cathiard family has fashioned a medium-bodied, light-styled 2013 Smith Haut Lafitte exhibiting a medium dark ruby color, attractive red and black currant fruit, a hint of graphite, and a one-dimensional mouthfeel. If it puts on weight and depth, it may merit a higher score. Based on this estate’s perfect wines in 2009, 2010 and great 2008, the so-so 2013 is somewhat disappointing. It should drink well for 6-10 years. Wine Advocate.August, 2014



Fresh sweet and spicy on the nose.  Some energy and a hint of depth.  Lovely Graves fruit in the mouth.  Easy and laid back.  This is all here and will want a few years in the cellar.  Long and elegant, this is proper wine. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2014.
