  • 92-93 James Suckling

    A firm and focused young red with full body, firm and silky textured tannins and a bright and fresh finish. Persistent and precise. Second wine of Smith Haut-Lafitte.

  • 92 Vinous Antonio Galloni

    The 2015 Le Petit Haut Lafitte is another terrific wine from Smith Haut Lafitte. Here, Cabernet Sauvignon speaks with authority. Black cherry, leather, earth, licorice and grilled herbs are all laced together, but it is the wine’s pure power and structure that stand out most.

  • 90-92 Wine Spectator

    Juicy and open in feel, with bramble, cassis and blueberry coulis flavors that drape easily over light tobacco and singed vanilla notes. Pulls together on the finish and shows latent length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2027.

  • 91-92 Neal Martin - Robert Parker WA

    The 2015 Le Petit Haut Lafitte has a very pure, almost Burgundy-like bouquet with red berry fruit, a little more gourmand in style than the Les Hauts de Smith, hints of garrigues emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth, the most saline, marine-influenced red from the Smith Haut Lafitte stable with fine delineation and mineralité on the finish. Very fine. Drink date: 2020 – 2035

  • 90 Robert Parker WA - LPB

    Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot coming from the younger vines of Smith Haut Lafitte, the 2015 Le Petit Haut Lafitte sports a medium garnet-purple color and an alluring crushed red currants, black cherries and spice box-laced nose with touches of cloves and lavender. Medium to full-bodied with wonderful generosity and plenty of spice, the open-for-business flavors are well-supported by plush tannins, and it finishes with a peppery lift. (22nd Feb, 2018)
