Critic reviews
"As usual, a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon matured 50% in new oak, the 2023 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc offers up aromas of spring flowers, citrus, lime tree leaves and menthol. Medium-bodied, satiny and round, it’s satiny with a fleshy core of fruit, bright acids and an elegant, ethereal finish enhanced by gastronomic bitterness. It will offer a broad drinking window."
Yohan Castaing, April 2024, RobertParker.com

"The 2023 Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc is a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon. It has a more complex and refined bouquet compared to the Les Haut Blanc: dried pineapple, peach skin and yellow plum. Lovely. The palate is very well balanced with a slightly waxy texture, a keen line of acidity and a fresh, Golden Delicious- and ginger-tinged finish. Recommended."
Neal Martin, April 2024, Vinous.com

"The 2023 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc is terrific. Airy and vibrant, the 2023 is pure class. Crushed rocks, mint, salt, white pepper and lemon curd are all beautifully lifted. The Sauvignon Blanc-based Petit is very fine in 2023."
Antonio Galloni, April 2024, Vinous.com

"Good vibration here, with edgy, fresh acidity that makes it long and vivid. It's medium-bodied and tight, with sliced lemon and green apple and stone character. Better than 2022? 80% sauvignon blanc and 20% semillon."
