Winemaker’s Notes:
Le Petit Haut Lafitte red 2018 is extremely fine with silky tannins and beautiful aromas and flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Medium-bodied, with notes of blackcurrant, licorice and dark chocolate. A great finesse and a good structure with a lot of ageing potential.


  • 93 Jeff Leve

    Bay leaf, scorched earth, black raspberry, blackberry, licorice, vanilla and smoke weave an arousing aromatic profile. The wine is concentrated, rich, silky and with good density of flavor. The fruit is ripe, soft and polished with freshness, blackberries dipped in chocolate, licorice and toast in the finish. I am quite certain this is the best vintage of Le Petit Haut Lafitte ever produced! (4/19/2019)

  • 91-92 Robert Parker Wine Advocate (LPB)

    “Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot matured in 20% new barriques, the 2018 Le Petit Haut Lafitte has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and expressive notions of crushed black plums, fresh blackberries and mulberries with wafts of dark chocolate, cinnamon stick and unsmoked cigars, plus a waft of bouquet garni. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of juicy black fruits, framed by fine-grained tannins and well-knit freshness, finishing with an herbal lift. Drink date: 2021 – 2033” (31st Mar 2021)
