Antonio Galloni Vinous 92-94 – "The 2020 Le Petit Haut Lafitte captures all the pedigree of the Grand Vin, but naturally in a more approachable style. Graphite, lavender, spice, menthol, blackberry jam and chocolate all saturate the palate. Savory, deep and exquisitely layered, the 2020 has it all. It's a great example of how compelling the best second wines are today. I have no doubt Le Petit Haut Lafitte is a more complete wine than some Grand Vins of previous generations."

Neal Martin Vinous 88-90 – "The 2020 Le Petit Haut Lafitte has an intriguing bouquet of blackberry, truffle and light earthy scents, almost Pomerol in style. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins and fine acidity, lightly peppered and leading to a smooth finish that just needs a little more grip. Having said that, there is commendable salinity and this should drink well for a decade."

Jane Anson Decanter 93 – "This is laden with cassis and bilberry - Cabernet dominant, with clearly defined muscles. Juicy and elegant, I love this, it is less approachable now than the Petit Haut de Smith, but hugely enjoyable, and has the precision that is the mark of the good wines in this vintage. A touch of austerity on the finish. 30% new oak."

Lisa Perrotti-Brown Wine Advocate 91-93 – "Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, aging in 30% new barriques, the 2020 Le Petit Haut Lafitte has a deep garnet-purple color, rolling out of the glass with alluring scents of blackberry preserves, Black Forest cake and warm cassis, plus wafts of red roses and cinnamon toast with a hint of dried mint. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers plush tannins and soft acidity to support the generous, juicy black fruits, finishing on a lingering minty note."

Chris Kissack Winedoctor 91-93 – "In this alternative second wine the focus is more on Cabernet Sauvignon, at 60% of the total, with 40% Merlot, the style usually a little more structured and capable of aging. Dark and yet vibrant in the glass, it has a touch of saturation to it. It has a finessed Cabernet perfume on the nose, with blackcurrants, violets and tar, showing more precision than Les Hauts de Smith today, and this impressive opening yields to an equally enthralling palate, which has a cashmere texture and a wealth of lightly grained floral fruits, wrapped in tightly knit tannins. Very fine delineation on the palate here, a greater sense of energy too, with some finely polished but substantial tannins, and it finishes on a note of tobacco, scorched earth and desiccated currants. It has length too. An impressive second wine."
