Expected this to be rather fat then mineral. Instead lovely line of acid and complex flavours of honey, lemon curd and hints of kerosene from barrel ageing. Beautiful to drink now! Our wine of the night!

From the cellar... drinking nicely, still youthful. A fair dollop of oak but plenty of fruit.

Trying some 05s lately to check how they are developing. This one shows great potential, but I will wait at least five years to open the next bottle.

2005 Chateau Smith Haute Lafite Blanc - to me this was oxidized and off - not a great bottle
