    Dominio de Pingus

    About Dominio de Pingus

    Nestled in the La Horra appellation of Ribera del Duero, Dominio de Pingus is an estate par excellence in the region, rising to consistently challenge and often surpass the mighty Vega-Sicilia.

    Founded and run by a global fine wine icon, oenologist Peter Sisseck is something of an enigma. Born in Denmark, fate and an unrelenting love for the terroir of Spain’s rugged Ribera del Duero led the masterful vigneron to establish what has become a truly legendary estate in 1995. Rising further into the stratosphere than perhaps even Sisseck anticipated, given the relatively unknown nature of Ribera del Duero at the time (Vega-Sicilia aside of course), Pingus has transcended boundaries and oceans to be considered an equal of the grandest names of Bordeaux, the rarest crus of Burgundy and the smallest cult labels of Napa.

    Viniculture

    There are currently 3 wines produced by the estate:  Flor de Pingus, a single barrel cuvée called Amelia (which began in 2003), and the flagship Pingus. In a normal vintage, there are usually about 4,000 cases of Flor de Pingus, 500 cases of Pingus and just 25 cases of Amelia.  The vines are all over 35 years of age and have been farmed biodynamically since 2005.

    The first vintage of Pingus was in 1995. The vines producing this fantastic wine are all at least 65 years of age and yields are typically under 1 ton per acre. The wine is 100% Tempranillo and is bottled without fining or filtration.

    Pingus 2014 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (100)

    I don't think I've ever tasted a wine more recently bottled than the 2014 Pingus, which was bottled in the morning and I tasted it that very same evening! Peter Sisseck compares this to the 1995, the first vintage ever produced, when he learned that when you have such perfect grapes, you should do very little to the wine. He's been trying to replicate that first vintage, but there's nothing you can do to force it, as it has to be the natural conditions of the vintage that bring those grapes. What he also learned with the 1995 was that with wines like that, you need a long and slow aging in oak; so for the 2014, he decided to do a little longer élevage—three winters in barrel—but in 100% used barrels, something he started in 2012. If it would have been new oak, as in the past, it would have been impossible to have such extended aging without marking the wine too much and possibly forever. The wine was quite tannic to start with, but it was racked every six months, and in that way they have managed to tame those tannins without getting the wine tired, as the aging itself was quite reductive. The nose is quite harmonious and open, but maybe not very expressive, a normal thing considering the extremely short bottle age it had (hours!), but it should gain precision in bottle. In instances like this, you have to guide yourself by the palate. And it's precisely on the palate where you find that texture that is almost unique to Ribera del Duero when it's as perfect as this. It's very different from other zones, a velvety mouthfeel and a surrounding sensation of comfort, incredibly long. The tannins are ultra fine and with that subtle chalkiness of the limestone soils, which also added to the tastiness and the supple aftertaste. In short, I cannot think of a way of improving this Pingus other, than getting a magnum instead of a regular bottle! Congratulations, Peter Sisseck! 4,800 bottles were filled on January 16th of 2017, a slightly shorter production than the average, because part of the vines were hit by hail and didn't make it into the final blend. Now stay tuned for 2015 and 2016.

    Pingus 2015 (3x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (99)

    Peter Sisseck was ecstatic about the quality of the 2015 Pingus. Since he no longer uses any new oak—and hasn't since 2012—the élevage in used wood is extended to 23 or 24 months. This is the first vintage certified as biodynamic from Demeter. We poured the wine and took half an hour to get to it, as the wine was very closed at first and opened up very slowly in the glass. Little by little, the nose started showing a floral character, what I consider the perfume of great Ribera del Duero, the elegant part that compensates the powerful nature of the wines and gives the finesse to the best wines. The wine has been very consistent in the last few vintages, as Sisseck reckons the old but balanced vines (they started working in biodynamics in 2000) cushion the vintage differences more than other younger vineyards. These vines were planted in 1929, and they have always been farmed organically and in a traditional way. This is truly outstanding. In a way, it made me think of 2010, even if they are very different years. It was bottled in August 2017, and there are some 6,500 bottles of this gem. Even if very young, it already drinks well. Great wines tend to be drinkable throughout their life...

    James Suckling (100)

    The benchmark Pingus? Everything is together here with an impeccable balance of ripe fruit, complex terrior character and perfect tannins. So perfumed with flowers and crushed stones. It’s full-bodied yet melts into the wine. The length is superb and goes on for minutes. Dense center palate. It just floats across the palate. It is a perfect wine that you just fall in love with it. Lasts for minutes. A joy to drink now, but will age for decades ahead.

    Pingus 2018 (3x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (100)

    I was really looking forward to the bottled version of the 2018 Pingus after a great showing of the cask sample last year. Part of the wine matured in 20,000-liter oak casks, so it's not all barrique. This is the first time they used the vats, and based on the results, Sisseck thinks in the future Pingus will be around 50% in oak vats. The Pingus vines were planted in 1929 in two different sectors of the village of La Horra, Barroso and San Cristobal and contain some 2% other varieties. The vineyards are certified organic and biodynamic and are manicured like few vineyards in Spain. The wine is subtle and harmonious, elegant and insinuating, with all the components in very good balance. This is precise and pure; Sisseck is thorough and meticulous, and the wine shows that precision. This follows the line of the 2016, showing very well even if it was bottled only one month before I tasted it. 9,300 bottles were filled in August 2020.

    Brilliant violet color. A heady bouquet displays scents of fresh raspberry, incense and rose pastille, with a spicy nuance adding lift. Stains the palate with red fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors, with tangy acidity providing lift and focus. Youthfully firm tannins build through the clinging finish, which repeats the red fruit and floral qualities.

    Peter Sisseck did a green harvest in his Flor de Pingus vineyards in 2018 to reduce the crop in what was often an abundant year. But the result is still a very graceful, scented expression of these La Horra vines, with no sign of over concentration. Benefiting from the reduction in new oak to 25% in recent years and the addition of 2% Garnacha for the first time, this is detailed, fresh and appealingly pure with silky tannins, succulent summer berry fruit and the palate length that's a feature of the Dane's winemaking style.

    Pingus Flor de Pingus Ribera del Duero 2019 (12x75cl)

    James Suckling (97)

    Blackberries, black cherries and hot crushed stones with cement and black licorice. Subtle yet complex aromas. Medium to full body and an exquisite texture, with intense tannins and a long, flavorful finish. The verve and mouth-feel is luxurious and captivating. This is very structured. Try after 2024.
