I recently bought some bottles of 2009 Château Smith Haut Lafitte, and I am suspecting their authenticity because the bottle labels do not match all the other ones that I’ve seen.
The key thing that is different is the omission of “De Graves” from the “Grand Cru Classé De Graves” on the front of the label on the bottles that I received.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a SHL bottle without the “De Graves”.
Does anyone know if the Château actually produces both label types? I don’t want to mention where I got them unless I am sure there is something wrong with them.
Here are photos of my bottle labels:
