Today the vineyard covers 67 hectares (170 acres) and offers tours of its 16th-century tower and cellar, as well as tastings of its wines.

    Good is the Castle, so we reached here excellence! The place is magical (still very different from the classic Bordeaux chateaux): an invitation to the walk in the vineyards and the dream (Hotel and restaurant of high-flying)... once. Very nice tour of the cellars with a nice tasting on top. A surprise awaits you at the end of tasting.

    The discovery of the chais precedes the wine. Exciting. Informative. And more a sumptuous wine grown and raised according to organic standards while being ultra modern. The 2009 received a score of 100/100 by Parker. Hat!

    Very nice tour of this fantastic Winery where the senses are awakened from the beginning at the end of the visit. Here we're not talking about wine, include you a story, that one Earth rich d a history of thousands of years that expresses all its character in this BREW which will end up in your glass. To make mandatory!

    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
