Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Le Petit Blanc 2020 Pessac-Leognan Bordeaux France (Futures Pre-Sale)
Pre-Sale Ships after July 31, 2021
93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2020 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc is made up of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon, aging in 50% new barriques. It offers open-knit scents of fresh Bosc pears, lemongrass and green guava, plus hints of white pepper and wet slate. The medium-bodied palate is crisp and refreshing, delivering mouth-filling apple and lemon-inspired flavors with a satiny texture and zesty finish.
93 Points James Suckling - A dense, layered white with cooked-apple, honey and lemon aromas and flavors. Layered and flavorful with a zingy, mineral finish. 80% sauvignon with 20% Semillon.
93 Points Vinous - The 2020 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc is bright and nicely focused. It is done in a style that is a bit more linear than Les Hauts. Crushed rocks, white pepper, mint, lemon oil and white flowers are beautifully delineated.
92 Points Decanter - A richer texture than the Hauts de Smith, less aromatic overall, one that is aimed more at the restaurant trade. The feel and form in the mouth is spherical but beautifully precise, it has weight through the mid palate with citrus fruits, white flowers and touch of bitterness on the finish of saffron and turmeric. 50% new oak.
