Smith 2023

10 June 2024

En Primeur releases continue.  The majority of Chateaux have now announced their 2023 prices, and those remaining are likely to follow suit this week. 

New releases

Chateau Larcis Ducasse - From Saint Emilion's acclaimed 'Cote Pavie' slope, adjacent to Pavie, this is an "elegant, powerful and expressive Saint Emilion" that should age very well.

Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte has now released their high-scoring red and white wines. Following a visit by King Charles to the Chateau during harvest, the 2023 wines will carry commemorative mentions on the label in both French & English:

'La visite du roi Charles III a donné son titre de noblesse à notre vendange 2023.'

'The influence of his majesty will resonate for a long time through this exceptional vintage.'

The second wines of the estate, Petit Haut Lafitte, are also available.
