The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Soutard features notes of warm plums, baked blueberries and blackberry pie with hints of fragrant earth, truffles, tapenade and lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has great elegance and sophistication, with plush tannins and wonderful freshness supporting the subtle fruit layers through the long finish.
(...) 2017 Palmer gives a very serious nose of pronounced blackcurrant cordial, warm plums and blackberry preserves with hints of cedar chest, pencil shavings, violets, dark chocolate and star anise plus exotic wafts of sandalwood and cassia. Medium-bodied, the palate features fantastically vibrant, crunchy black fruits with a firm texture of ripe, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte 2012 offers a beautiful dark bright red colour. Its expressive nose reveals very fresh notes of red fruits with a hint of smoke. The attack in mouth is fresh and balanced with a fleshy and unctuous texture.
The wine is a subtle balance between maturity and freshness. The aromatic is characterised by the freshness with red fruits, spices notes of liquorice and dry herbs.
