Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Le Petit Haut Lafitte, Pessac Léognan, 2014
ABV:
13.5%
92/100
Antonio Galloni, Vinous

The 2014 Le Petit Haut Lafitte is dark and brooding, but the tannins are nicely tamed, which gives the wine a striking sense of proportion. Graphite, game, smoke, lavender and grilled herb notes abound. All of the signatures of this site come through nicely in an accessible, midweight wine that will drink well with minimal cellaring. The blend is 60 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 40 % Merlot.

Daniel and Florence Cathiard have taken this Pessac estate to the next level. The wines here outshine many of the top names from the more fashionable communes and are challenging the likes of Haut Bailly, La Mission and even Haut Brion for supremacy in the Graves. Their 2009 received a perfect 100 points from Robert Parker and we think the 2010 is even better. The style is pure seductive fruit and a silky texture; the quality is exceptional. Kudos to Daniel and Florence for turning this good, but slightly underperforming estate into one of the finest in Pessac Leognan.
