Winery Info/ Brand

Today, Smith Haut Lafitte is made with the most modern winemaking techniques and age-old methods of organic compost, small wooden vats, ageing on the lees in barrel, etc. The finest product exhibits elegant red wine with sophisticated bouquet which truly reflects the brand.
Region Info/ Origin
Pessac-Léognan is a wine growing area and Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, in the northern part of the Graves region of Bordeaux. Unlike most Bordeaux appellations, Pessac-Léognan is recognised for both red and (dry) white wine, although red wine is still predominant. It includes the only red-wine producer outside the Haut-Médoc classified in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, the premier cru Château Haut-Brion, and also all of the châteaux listed in the 1953/59 classification of Graves. These classed growths account for a third of the wine produced in Pessac-Léognan.
