VALUE FOR MONEY
If you pay attention to us at Fine Wines SG, we purchase busloads of Le Petit Haut Lafitte every year. Why? Very simply this is the best value for money wines you can find for less than S$100, it can even be better than many classified growths, in terms of value and pleasure! Smith Haut Lafitte produced this second wine consistently, outperforming an overwhelming amount of second wines out there, I can only name Carraudes de Lafite, Les Forts de Latour and Pavillon Rouge as a slightly better second wine, but not by a mile. The bouquet immediately fed you with a load of ultra-ripe dark berries, very forward and hedonistic. The body was a big wine by any standard, loads of tannins masked underneath the fruits but if you don’t disturb it, you can hardly feel it. Very fruity, and a very long finishing wrapped up this wine as my #1 choice for wines under S$100. Comes in wooden cases packed in 12 bottles. (30/5/2019)

The wine, a majority of young Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, is structured and firm with solid tannins and layers of black currant. This will be ready to be drink after 2025.(4/2017)

The 2016 Le Petit Haut Lafitte is a fabulous second wine from Smith Haut Lafitte. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender, menthol, licorice and cloves give the Petit Haut Lafitte its striking aromatic complexity. Deep, resonant and exquisitely layered, the 2016 is a real joy to taste. I would cellar it for another year or two. The 2016 has enough depth and pedigree to develop beautifully for the next 10-15 years.(1/2019)
