Description

Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte is a Grand Cru Classified Château from Graves. The story of this estate dates back to the 14th century when George Smith, a Scottish wine businessman, acquired the estate and renamed it after him.

The property passed through the hands of different owns, but it was in 1990, with the acquisition of Daniel and Florence Cathiard, that this winery finally exploit its potential, and became synonymous with premium, high-quality wines in Bordeaux, and as Wine Spectator said, rejuvenated into one of Bordeaux’s elite properties.”

Le Petit Haut Lafitte is Smith Haut Lafitte’s second wine.The grapes to produce this superb wine comes from The Chai Furtif’s vineyard. This second wine is crafted with the same care and respect as its older brother, the Grand Vin. From the vineyard to the cellar, all the production techniques are identical. 

Tasting Notes

Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot coming from the younger vines of Smith Haut Lafitte, the 2015 Le Petit Haut Lafitte has a medium garnet-purple color and an alluring crushed red currants, black cherries and spice box-laced nose with touches of cloves and lavender. Juicy and open in feel, with bramble, cassis and blueberry coulis flavors that drape easily over light tobacco and singed vanilla notes.
