I suppose this is considered old wine (or at least in my book it is)... It’s 18 years old to be exact. And it is fascinating, the wine still looks and feels pretty young. Very exuberant with notes of leather, oak, cocoa, tobacco, smoke and baked black berries, some humidity as well. The palette is joy: smooth and velvety with dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, some dry mushroom and perfectly balanced acidity. It is dry, bold, complex, with medium alcohol. Killer wineshop find!
I wasn’t able to find much info on this wine, any shared knowledge on the comments would really enlighten me. Apparently there is some affiliation with Lafitte… Not comparing, I haven't had the pleasure of tasting it, but this one really blew me out of the water. Cheers to great finds.

Very aromatic. Overwhelming. A dark fruit: blackberry, plum. Then: a cigar. Long finish with spicy notes. Love it. — 6 days ago
Delicious. Is that the least or most useful tasting note? But this is. It’s is a rich dish that someone thought fit to squeeze a lemon on to brighten that dish up. The new oak is in play and probably the biggest factor, but the acid is there—somehow gently cutting through.
Something still keeps it from being transcendent but you are definitely going to desire a second glass. — a month ago

This is a funny one too. My line manager (polish, her) is one the greatest wine lover I know. We've been working with one another for over 2 and half years but she's been my boss since January. We always have had that lovely habit to exchange wine bottles. Every time she travels and attends to tastings she would bring back a bottle to me and the other way around. This year I brought her back one of those white Beaujolais I shared earlier this month and she brought me back this one from Portugal.
Nice nose with black currant, bacon, smoke, blackberry even. This is intoxicating. The palate is easy going with a strong acid backbone and a lot of matter all along. Some width, some of these smokey notes, some tannins too in midpalate, that power up a good long smokey, fruity finish with some freshness. This is overall rather very good! — a month ago
Great aroma and taste of blueberries, mild oak, mild dry — a month ago
Notes of minerality and pepper and very easy on the palate. Probably would have been best to decant it beforehand but it settled down nicely. — 6 days ago
