A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% each of Semillon and Sauvignon Gris, this has a lifted mineral-rich bouquet scents of oyster shell, yuzu and apricot with fine delineation (the Sauvignon Blanc not particularly evident.) It is very attractive and very well defined. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, showing more weight and structure than the Les Haut de Smith but has a similar flavour profile. It has a satisfying citric kick on the finish. Excellent. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Wow. This shows a beautiful density of fruit for this white with mango, papaya, mineral and light honey character. Long and subtle with plenty of gorgeous fruit. Grand cru Burgundy quality. Salty and mineraly. Lively. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Shows lovely ripeness, with peach, melon rind and yellow apple fruit flavors, but still plenty tangy, with fleur de sel and gooseberry notes along the edges. Very long, with a great interplay between ripe fruit and bracing minerality. Mouthwatering finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Pale lemon-gold, richly aromatic for a Sauvignon-dominated wine that shows perfect ripeness of fruit. It has both breadth and depth of flavour and an exciting future. Drink 2014-2020. (17.5 points) . Decanter.com

A lovely white from Smith Haut Lafitte with detailed stone fruits and generous mid palate. There is a bit less concentration here than in previous few years of their whites but nonetheless balanced, fresh and lively. An elegant white wine with good length. Jeannie Cho Lee MW, AsianPalate.com
