Would that be Chteau Smith Haut-Lafitte?

Because the red wine I had in mind was the 1959 Ch Mouton-Rothschild Which I
tasted in parallel with the Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1959.

The white wine that was my vinous awakening was '67 Ch Suduiraut. And the
dry white would be a magnum of Le Montrachet '67 from Marquis de Laguiche.
All the Best
