Other Reviews....
The 2019 Les Hauts de Smith Blanc begins a little closed on the nose, soon unfurling to reveal fragrant scents of lime blossoms, lemongrass and shaved ginger with a core of yuzu, fresh apple slices and kumquat plus a waft of dill seed. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with zip and zing, offering a racy acid backbone and a seriously minerally finish.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate

The 2019 Les Hauts de Smith Blanc, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, is a wine of real sophistication and class. Floral overtones, orchard fruit, chamomile, mint and a kiss of new French oak all grace this exquisite, wonderfully expansive Sauvignon Blanc.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2019 Les Hauts de Smith Blanc has a little more amplitude on the nose than I expected, quite intense scents of red apple, pear, melon and light waxy aromas, as if there had been a touch of Sémillon in the blend. The palate is well balanced with fresh acidity, crisp and focused with a tangy salinity that gets the saliva flowing on the finish. Superb.

Neal Martin - Vinous

Already a delicious, fruity white with light mango, pear and honey character. Medium body, creamy texture and a fruity finish. Not the most concentrated, but nicely done.
