95-97 Parkerpunkte: "The 2015 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is adorned with a special label to celebrate the 650th anniversary of the château and the 25th vintage made under the ownership of Daniel and Florence Cathiard. It is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, picked between 23 September until 12 October with the Cabernet Franc. Matured in 65% new oak (although technical director Fabien Teitgen mentioned that he could have added more if he felt it would benefit), it has a very intense, blueberry and crème de cassis scented bouquet, a touch more opulent than its peers with hints of freshly shucked oyster shell developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin couched in gorgeous, satin-textured black cherry and cassis fruit, tinged with cedar and pencil shavings. It lingers very long and sensually in the mouth, completing a sophisticated and powerful Smith Haut-Lafitte that should age in splendid fashion." Drink 2025-2050 (Neil Martin in Robert Parkers Wine Advocate - www.erobertparker.com #224, April 2016)

18/20 Weinwisser: "63 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 33 % Merlot, 2 % Cabernet Franc, 2 % Petit Verdot. Extrem dunkles Purpur mit lila und violetten Reflexen. Deutlich röstiger Beginn, Kaffeenoten, schwarze Kirschen. dunkle Edelhölzer, die Beerenkonturen zeigen alle drei Farben auf; rot, blau und schwarz. Im Gaumen erst elegant beginnend, dann mit seinen verlangenden Tanninen zugreifend. Er wird viel Flaschenreife brauchen, um diese noch extrahiert wirkenden Gerbstoffnoten in sich zu integrieren. Das Potential ist zweifellos da. Mit diesem 2015er feiert man gleich zwei Jubiläen. 650 Jahre Smith-Haut-Lafitte (seit 1365) und 25 Jahre Cathiard-Besitz (seit 1990)." 2025-2050. (René Gabriel im Weinwisser 4-5/2016)

James Suckling 97-98: "This is a very polished and precise young wine with beautiful depth and intensity. Full and sexy. It shows blueberry and black currant character with walnut and chocolate undertones. The tannins have a lovely texture. Joy to taste."

Decanter 96: "63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Organic. A wonderful wine of great impact and rich, grippy tannins but the density imperceptibly lightens towards the finish so you are left with the impression of freshness even though the liquorice, black cherry and cassis flavour persists. Smith Haut Lafitte has clearly stopped chasing the ripest fruit, instead going for the most aromatic, at perfect phenolic maturity. 3.7pH, 65% new oak."
