2018 Les Hauts De Smith Blanc
94 points, Wine Spectator. "There's lots to like here, with an already creamy-textured core of yellow apple, singed almond, brioche and straw notes. Shows the lower-acidity feel of the vintage, but not shy on depth or range."
94 points, Jeb Dunnuck. "Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc aging in 50% new oak, the 2018 Les Hauts De Smith Blanc offers a more mineral-driven, almost salty style as well as racy notes of lemon curd, crushed rocks, toasted spice, brioche, and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, concentrated, with racy acidity, it's a rockingly good white in a vintage that was difficult for the variety."
93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. "Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc aging in 50% new oak, the 2018 Les Hauts de Smith Blanc displays pear drops, lemongrass, fresh pineapple and lime juice notes with touches of crushed stones, wet slate and mandarin peel. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with mouthwatering tropical fruit plus a pleasantly oily texture and a racy backbone, finishing with great length and vibrancy."
