This is an extraordinary performance once again from the Cathiard family, the proprietors of Smith-Haut-Lafitte; they think the 2010 is even better than the 2009. This wine has laser-like definition in its remarkable nose of a subtle charcoal fire interwoven with spring flowers, creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur and spicy wood. Full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, long, rich and moderately tannic, this wine is set for an exceptionally long life of 30-40 years but can be drunk in now if desired.
