  • Located in the territory of Pessac-Léognan, in front of the star restaurant Les Sources de Caudalie, we discover the vineyards and his castle for a pleasant walk. We admire the clusters of black majority cabernet-sauvignon and merlot grapes that give a grand cru Classé of the wines of Graves. The setting is superb, the beautiful castle with its high tower, the huge cellars filled with barrels. Discover, a nice old car in the Court. In summary, is worth a visit.

  • I spent a half of my day at Château Smith Haut Lafitte Grand Cru Classé De Graves with a great taisting. The 2015' white blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Semillion and 5% Sauvignion Gris was outstanding. I just studed that wine from this Château could be recognise in the blind taisting, for a white truffles and a white papper flavour. 16.06.2017
