Other Reviews....
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.

Yohan Castaing - Wine Advocate (Apr 2023)

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.

Pretty apples, pears and lemons with crushed stone. Medium to full body. Creamy texture. Bright and lively acidity at the end. 80% sauvignon blanc and 20% semillon.

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.

Creamy rich, lightly honeyed lemon and lime on the nose with peach and pear and floral scents. Round and ripe with a soft juiciness in the middle accented by a touch of sweet and sharp citrus and orchard fruit with a weighty, creamy, fatness at the end. A more gourmet take with an enjoyable unctuous element and general weight. Gentle, confident, rich but maintains definition, balance and focus. Compelling with a cool wet stone minerality on the finish that is so moreish. This will continue to age well and change with the Semillon taking on more body. 3.2pH. 50% new barrels. Drink 2023 - 2028.
