Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte

Cru Classé de Graves

This great growth owes its reputation as “the quintessential Graves” to its superb Günz gravel terroir in a single block.
The estate’s history goes back to the Crusades (which accounts for the fleurs-de-lis on the coat of arms). The Scottish navigator Georges Smith acquired the château in the 18th century. Monsieur Duffour-Dubergier, a Mayor of Bordeaux from a famous family of wine merchants, was a subsequent owner.
Daniel and Florence Cathiard also fell under the charm of the estate. They restored the 16th century tower, renovated the 18th century château, rearranged 2 underground cellars, started working the soil the traditional way once again, banned weed killers, and established their own cooperage. The exemplary elegance, balance, body, and structure of Smith Haut Lafitte’s great white and red wines justify the owners’ passion for total quality.
