The 2014 Smith Haut-Lafitte has a much simpler bouquet than the 2014 Pape-Clément, with scents of pencil lead and cooked meat infusing the black fruit. The palate is well balanced with slightly firm tannin, moderate levels of acidity that segues to a very peppery and vivacious finish. This is a sophisticated and classy Pessac-Léognan, though I wonder if it is starting to close down? Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Intense dried-cranberry and herbal nose with some toasty oak precedes a rich but not heavy palate with plenty of tannic power and a long, dry finish. Needs two or three years to soften.

The 2014 Les Petit Haut Lafitte has an attractive blackberry, cedar and black olive-scented bouquet that unfolds nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well balanced with quite a saline, marine-influenced finish that lends this character. Enjoy this well-crafted Pessac-Léognan over the next five or six years.
