VALUE FOR MONEY
If you pay attention to us at Fine Wines SG, we purchase busloads of Le Petit Haut Lafitte every year. Why? Very simply this is the best value for money wines you can find for less than S$100, it can even be better than many classified growths, in terms of value and pleasure! Smith Haut Lafitte produced this second wine consistently, outperforming an overwhelming amount of second wines out there, I can only name Carraudes de Lafite, Les Forts de Latour and Pavillon Rouge as a slightly better second wine, but not by a mile. The bouquet immediately fed you with a load of ultra-ripe dark berries, very forward and hedonistic. The body was a big wine by any standard, loads of tannins masked underneath the fruits but if you don’t disturb it, you can hardly feel it. Very fruity, and a very long finishing wrapped up this wine as my #1 choice for wines under S$100. Comes in wooden cases packed in 12 bottles.
