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.

Beautiful Bordeaux that will probably last another 10-15 years, but we won’t know because it’s drank tonight!! Cherry, fruit on the front, lingers to tobacco / leather on the back pallet. Completely quaffable and still has some years left, although not many! Beautiful portrayal of Bordeaux!! — 8 days ago
