Jane Anson van Decanter: 'one of the best-value whites in Bordeaux'

Plenty of signature Les Hauts de Smith joyful fruit, with apricot, white pear and citrus. An arrow-splice of juice cuts through the palate, this is bright and cheerful and very much ready to drink. Super enjoyable, maybe a tiny bit less clear Sauvignon Blanc character than in some vintages, but still a delicious wine and one of the best-value whites in Bordeaux. Mouthwatering finish. 50% new oak.
The Wine Advocate
Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc aging in 50% new oak, the 2020 Les Hauts de Smith Blanc features notions of lime cordial, fresh grapefruit and Granny Smith apples on the nose, with suggestions of straw and elderflower. The medium-bodied palate is packed with zippy citrus and green apple flavors, supported by a racy backbone, finishing with a zingy lift.
