2023 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Cru Classe, Pessac-Leognan 6x75cl

JA96VM95-97
“The 2023 Smith Haut Lafitte is a powerhouse. In recent years, the Grand Vin has shifted toward a bit more nuance than in the past, but in 2023, small yields and thick skins yielded a somber,... explosive Grand Vin. It will need many years to be at its most expressive. Blackberry, gravel, licorice, spice, plum and chocolate are some of the many notes that emerge from the glass. Readers will find a wine of real substance and textural intensity, framed by vibrant acids. A touch of air works wonders here.” 95-97 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

2023 Chateau Lynch Bages 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

JA96VM94-97
"The 2023 Lynch-Bages is a dark, brooding wine. In so many vintages, Lynch-Bages is a wine of sensuality, but in 2023, it is quite the powerhouse. Formidable tannins wrap around a core of black... fruit, spice, menthol, licorice and gravel. This is a somber, introspective Lynch-Bages with a ton of Cabernet Sauvignon character. I can't wait to taste this from bottle." 94-97 pts., Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
