"90 out of 100…The 2013 Smith-Haut-Lafitte has a composed and quite refined bouquet, certainly one of the best that I have encountered on the Left Bank, with wild strawberry mixed with cedar and a touch of graphite. The palate is smooth on the entry, the oak nicely integrated, almost Pinot-like in texture with a prickle of spice on the finish. Recommended for the vintage, this constitutes a very respectable Pessac-Léognan from the Cathiard family in what was a difficult vintage." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
"(91-92) out of 100...This is very, very fresh with a bright berry and currant character. Medium to full body with fine tannins. Very pretty finish. Subtle and delicate. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and a touch of cabernet franc and petit verdot. - James Suckling
"(89-92) out of 100...Open and fresh, with a caressing edge to the plum, raspberry and lilac notes, lined with a subtle twinge of singed vanilla on the finish. Restrained for now, but shows lovely length. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
