Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte 是Robert Parker 認為Pessac-Leognon這産區最有升級潛力的，事實上，2009年的Smith Haut Lafitte拿了Robert parker 100滿分！！ 酒莊有72公頃土地，56公頃為葡萄園，其中45公頃種植紅葡萄品種，有35％的Merlot，55％的Cabernet Sauvignon和10％的Cabernet Franc; 11公頃產白葡萄品種，種植有90％的Sauvignon Blanc，5％的Sauvignon Gris。 Lafitte的意思是“比較高的小丘”，這裡的土質結構適合Cabernet Sauvignon的生長Le Petit Haut Lafitte是Smith Haut Lafitte推出的副牌，提高merlot比例，酒體更加甜美。在不銹鋼'容器中發酵，然後在橡木桶中陳年14個月~
The 2017 Le Petit Haut Lafitte is another gorgeous wine in this range. Cabernet Sauvignon flavors are really popping today in a wine that is rich, deep and super-expressive. Iron, sweet red cherry, mint, dried flowers and white pepper all run through this gorgeous second wine from Smith Haut Lafitte. The 2017 could use a few years in bottle to fully come together, as the tannins are pretty fierce today. Quite frankly the Le Petit Haut Lafitte could challenge many grand vins in 2017.
James Suckling 92pts
Beautiful spice character to this with blackberries and black olives. Medium body. Round, juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink after 2021.
Robert Parker 90pts
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Le Petit Haut Lafitte delivers a slightly broody nose of tar, new leather and truffles over an emerging core of warm plums, mulberries and boysenberries with a touch of anise. Medium-bodied, the palate offers loads of black cherries and savory hints with a plush frame and earthy finish.
