“One of the stars of the vintage”
Smith Haut Lafitte is one of the great estates of Bordeaux. This property has had a huge following amongst Bordeaux lovers for years. Then with the 2009 vintage if you were a wine lover who did not know Smith Haut Lafitte—well you do now! The perfect score of 100 points from Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate is comparable to the shot heard around the world. Now this Chateau has even more attention than it already had. That is where we say…step back and look at the 2008 vintage. A great wine from Smith Haut Lafitte the 2008 is an absolute beauty that not only is a great classic bottle of Bordeaux but also a reasonable one at only $65 per bottle. With the 2009 selling for over $200 per bottle and the 2010 and 2011 as prearrivals selling for $135 and $75 this stand-out of the 2008 vintage is a pretty smart buy.
