2019 Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte
2019 Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte
As the 2nd wine of Pessac-Léognans very historic Château Smith Haut Lafitte (Grand Cru Classé de Graves), Le Petit Haut Lafitte is a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot, which, grown on the region's extremely gravel-rich terroir, expresses all its classic smoky and mineral attributes that characterise the appellation. It is also fruit from vines averaging a lesser age than those of the châteaux's grand vin, but, of course, of precisely the same provenance and worked with precisely the same expertise for which the estate is famous.
And even better at this in-bond price for what is a sublime palate of briary, dark chocolate and blackberry fruit that is also plush, supplely structured and finishes long in flavours of graphite and pepper. It promises extreme drinking enjoyment
"The 2019 Le Petit Haut Lafitte is a potent, brooding wine. Gravel, crushed rocks, blackberry jam, lavender, menthol and licorice infuse the 2019 with tremendous character and nuance. Cabernet Sauvignon takes the leading role, and that very much comes through in the wine's tannic profile and overall feel. This is a fabulous showing. Le Petit Haut Lafitte is a serious second wine that needs a bit of time in bottle to be at its very best." 92-94 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
