Description

Château Smith Haut Lafitte Le Petit Haut Lafitte Pessac-Léognan 2018

Château Smith Haut Lafitte Le Petit Haut Lafitte is a second wine from a top estate in the Pessac-Léognan appellation, Bordeaux. This red has a beautiful depth, density and complexity. Beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackcurrant and spice dominate the bouquet. Medium-bodied on the palate with silky tannins, a bright acidity and a good structure. Blackcurrant, liquorice and dark chocolate flavours all in a wrap with great finesse. There’s great ageing potential in this extremely fine red.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The grapes come from the vines of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, a single block on a Günz gravel plateau in the Pessac-Léognan appellation.

Harvest is done by hand. Grapes go through sorting twice, before and after destemming. Next is optical sorting before the berries gently drop without crushing into both wooden and stainless steel vats for fermentation. Pumping over during fermentation to extract tannins and colour. The wine ages for 14 months in wooden barrels (20% new) from their in-house cooperage.
