Domino de Pingus

750ML

£200.00

Flor de Pingus is the second wine of the illustrious estate. However, it’s hard to call a wine of this quality a second wine! Flor de Pingus comes from old vine fruit just and is produced to be able to age for numberous years just like the first wine. Aromas of cassis, violet, cedar and tobacco on the nose. The palate is powerful and rich with incredible structure. This is serious Ribera made by one of the finest winemakers in the world.

Description

Pingus is widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest red wines: the brainchild of owner/winemaker Peter Sisseck (originally from Denmark) who established the estate in the mid-nineties. Pingus, which is located in the La Horra region of the Ribera del Duero, crafts three wines: Flor de Pingus, a single barrel cuvee called Amelia, and the flagship Pingus. The vines are over 35 years of age and farmed biodynamically since 2005.

CRITIC REVIEWS

CRITIC SCORE:
95.5/100

The sublime 2004 Flor de Pingus lacks the pure size and power of the 2005 but more than makes up for it with a regal elegance. The aromatics are already revealing considerable complexity while on the palate it is succulent, impeccably balanced, and mouth-coating. Give it another 5-6 years of bottle age and drink it from 2015 to 2034.
98/100 - Jay S Miller, The Wine Advocate

Inky ruby. Exotic aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, roasted coffee, dark chocolate and cured tobacco. Lush, sweet and smoky, with a supple texture to the deep dark berry liqueur flavors. No edges here, just luscious dark fruits and a wild smoky quality that carries into the finish. Impressively powerful and rich on the back end, with a lingering blackberry quality that won't quit.
93/100 - Josh Raynolds, Vinous (Tasted September 2006)
