    (Chateau Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc (Pessac-Léognan)) What an unusual and exotic nose, the aromas more reminiscent of freshly cut honeydew melon than anything more readily related to the varieties employed. Fresh, brightly composed, attractive, I must admit I find it appealing. Rather an oily feel on entry though, and this stays through the midpalate, showing an exotically flavoured yet viscous style. There is acidity here, with an almost laser-like, minerally presence. And yet the composition just seems to have too much fat for me. If that changes during the élevage this could be lovely.
