Description

Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte has a long history in Bordeaux that dates back over 800 years. The estate started out life as part of the Du Boscq holdings in the Graves region. It was Du Boscq who planted vines in 1365 on a gravelly plateau called Lafitte. This is of course where part of the famous chateau took its name from.For the white Bordeaux wine of Smith Haut Lafitte, they have 11 hectares planted to 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 5% Semillon. The white wine grapes are planted just behind the chateau and to the north. Here you find more clay and limestone in the soils and slightly cooler temperatures for the white wine grapes.For the white wine grape varieties, the microclimate is a bit cooler. The white wine grapes planted today are quite different than what you found in previous, older vintages. Prior to thepurchase of Smith Haut Lafitte by the Cathiard family, the white wines were produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc
