Staff Notes:

"The 2018 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc is a blend of 80% Sauvignon and 20% Sémillon brought up in 50% new French oak. It's a little gem of a Bordeaux Blanc offering lots of ripe lemon, toasted nut, and honeysuckle notes to go with a rich, medium to full-bodied, impressively textured style. If you like rich, textured, yet balanced Bordeaux Blanc, give this beauty a whirl." 93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com

"The 2022 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc is a jewel of wine. Bright, focused and finely cut, the 2022 bristles with energy and tension. The blend is 80% Sauvignon and 20% Sémillon, done in a style that is all about energy. Citrus peel, almond, chamomile, dried flowers and herbs all race through to the finish. Drink 2025-2032." 92-94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous, vinous.com, Apr 2023

"I always seem to prefer this cuvée over the Les Hauts de Smith Blanc, and the 2022 Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc is a solid step up. A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon, it has beautiful melon, honeyed citrus, and floral aromatics. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, vibrant, yet still concentrated, balanced white that should have a decade of longevity." 92-94 Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, Apr 2023

"A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon, the 2022 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc is a solid effort, exhibiting aromas of peach, pear and smoke with flinty notes. Medium-bodied, charming and fleshy, it has racy acids, a delicate tannic sensation and a long, delicate core of fruit (lemon oil) with a penetrating finish." 91-93 Yohan Castaing, Wine Advocate, Apr 2023
