Le Petit Haut Lafitte

2009 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Rouge has a beautiful, very deep red colour. The nose is open, elegant, and expressive with overtones of red fruit, black fruit, mint, cedar, spice (liquorice, clove), and burnt nuances (gunflint, hearth). Concentrated, powerful, and tightly-knit on the palate Well-structured thanks to Cabernet Sauvignon, with a beautiful tannic texture. Very full-bodied and rich, with a long, powerful aftertaste. The wonderful, complex aromatics of Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage are complemented by a subtle balance between fruit and spice. 2009 Le Petit Haut Lafitte Rouge is a well-structured, concentrated wine with a fine finish. It will be very enjoyable to drink in the next 3 to 5 years.
