The Wine Advocate

"The finest wine ever made by proprietors Daniel and Florence Cathiard, the 2009 Smith-Haut-Lafitte exhibits an opaque blue/purple color in addition to a glorious nose of acacia flowers, licorice, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, lead pencil shavings and incense. This massive, extraordinarily rich, unctuously textured wine may be the most concentrated effort produced to date, although the 2000, 2005 and 2010 are nearly as prodigious. A gorgeous expression of Pessac-Leognan with sweet tannin, emerging charm and delicacy, and considerable power, depth, richness and authority, it should age effortlessly for 30-40+ years. Bravo!"

Robert Parker 100 Punkte (Dez. 2011)


"One can't say enough about what proprietors Daniel and Florence Cathiard have accomplished at this estate since 1990. Regrettably, I am old enough to remember how horrible the wines were before the Cathiards purchased the property. They have fashioned one of the most consistently outstanding wines, both white and red, over the last two decades, and their 2009 probably eclipses any previous performance. An opaque purple color is followed by an explosive nose of graphite, black currants, licorice, incense, and a hint of black tea. The wine hits the palate with extraordinary density, unctuosity, and richness, yet it never comes across as heavy or overbearing. Deep and full-bodied with sensational concentration as well as remarkable purity and precision, this brilliant wine possesses the high, but sweet tannins that are a hallmark of the vintage, and exceptional delicacy allied to massive power and richness ... a rare combination indeed. This prodigious effort should drink well for 30-40 years. Bravo! (Tasted five times.)"

Decanter Magazine

"Dense red, fine rich and wonderfully succulent and briary wild fruits nose, rich, robust vineyard fruit with internal spice, energy and depth. Drink 2016-30."

18/20 Punkte


Jancis Robinson

Drink 2016-2026; Moderate and rather cool and intriguing on the nose. Some sweetness at first and then slightly inky. The tannins are far from the most supple but they just about do the trick without being too drying on the finish. Just a little bit gawky, and there's some alcohol on the finish."

"Now, with just a few minutes of air you find truffle, smoke, fennel, black cherry, smoke and cocoa, dark chocolate notes. Full bodied, concentrated, the tannins are soft, the texture is round, the fruits are sweet, but there is oak needing to be better integrated into the wine. Give it another 5-8 years in the cellar, and if the oak fully integrates, this is going to be a great wine!"

"Like all great wines, this keeps getting better as it ages. Fat, rich, ripe, juicy, lush, opulent, round and dense, the wine is packed with ripe blackberries, plum, espresso, spice, earth and cigar wrapper. While this is good now, it's going to be much better with age as the wine gains in complexity and pulls together."

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"Extrem dunkles Purpur mit lila und violetten Reflexen. Rahmiges Bouquet, Brombeergelée, Kokos, ein Hauch Vanille, parfümierte Cabernetnoten die sich mit verführersich süssem Merlot vermischen, Heidelbeerblüten. Im Gaumen saftig und cremig, berauschend süsse Tannine zeigend die sich schon etwas angerundet haben, im Innern fein pfeffrig mit einer gallopierenden Rasse die dem Wein eine spannende Länge verleihen. Es wird spannend sein, hier zu verfolgen ob er an den genialen 2005er "andocken" kann. Wenn er es schafft - dann landet er in knapp 10 Jahren bei 19/20.


Zwei Mal innert einer Woche auf Smith verkostet. Es ist genial und hat grossartige Anlagen. Durch seine warme Ausstrahlung hat er viele Pessac-Allüren! (19/20). 16: Bei einem Besuch während der Ernte mit Daniel Cathiard getrunken. Er flutscht nur so runter, süss, füllig, absolut sexy. Blind wüsste man wohl nicht grad so schnell, dass dies ein Pessac-Léognan-Wein sein könnte. Aber auf einen Weltklassewein würde man sehr schnell kommen!"

René Gabriel 19/20


Wine Spectator

"Clean. Blackberry and lightly toasted oak with coffee and cedar. Full-bodied and a very, very powerful structure. Blockbuster. Massive and dense, yet remains agile. A triumph for this estate."

James Suckling 95-98 Punkte


Bettane & Desseauve

"Sumptuous texture, perfectly ripened grapes, completly harmonious core, with irreproachable honesty and purity, in short the richest, most accomplished redwine from this property in a long time, and one of the highlights of the vintage."

"The 2009 Smith Haut-Lafitte has a very perfumed, quite floral bouquet with violets permeating the black and red fruit, hints of game and leather developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. Touches of brown spice filter through the red fruit and towards a fleshy and lightly peppered finish. This is a classy Pessac-Léognan from the Cathiard's...though, the 2016 is better! Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting."

Neal Martin 94 Punkte (März 2019)


"Good bright red-ruby. Enticing aromas of blueberry, flowers, graphite and charred, nutty oak, plus a sexy suggestion of floral white fruit. Like liquid silk on entry, then concentrated and lush in the middle, with red plum, tobacco and mineral flavors given definition by lovely harmonious acidity. Utterly seamless wine with suave tannins. Voluminous and intense but not a powerhouse. Finishing flavors mount slowly and stain the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Conveys a beautiful impression of site and vintage. The most complete young Smith Haut Laffite I've yet tasted at this early stage; perhaps my score will ultimately prove to be conservative."

Stephen Tanzer 94+ Punkte (Juli 2012)


"Deep ruby-purple. Aromas of smoky plum, blackberry syrup, cinnamon and canele (a Bordeaux specialty made from a caramelized batter containing rum and vanilla) are very ripe but not exaggerated, and nicely lifted by floral and mineral topnotes. Very fresh in the mouth, with almost delicate but very deep flavors of dark berries, cedar and minerals. Finishes long and pure, with noticeable saline and grapey nuances. This highly successful wine manages a tricky balancing act between superripeness and just the right amount of freshness; in fact, this seems almost understated to me even though it boasts a extremely high IPT of 100 and possesses outstanding depth and substance. It also relies much less on oak for weight and structure than a couple of recent vintages, and therein lies a good measure of its success. Should be one of the red wine stars of '09."
