  1. Juliet Kim
    A dense and concentrated wine bursting with dark ripe fruit, sweet spices and perfumed notes of violet. Most surprising are the finely integrated tannins and oak on a wine in its youth. This is a brooding wine that is incredibly approachable now, but will age effortlessly for years to come. When Peter Sisseck visited in February, he emphasized that 2014 vintage is such an exciting vintage because it so closely relates to 1995, his legendary and inaugural vintage of Pingus. And while 2014 Flor de Pingus did not receive a perfect 100 points like its big brother, Pingus, it surely rivals it in opulence and elegance for a fraction of the price.

    The 2014 Flor de Pingus could very well be the finest vintage of this cuve ever. It could be considered their 'village' wine, as all the grapes come from La Horra, from four different quarters (El Pino, Fuentearriba, Fuentenarro and Castillo); they are mostly old vines, as they have some 25 hectares of those in the village, mostly from the 1950s. In the future it will also have some grapes from younger vineyards they planted ' l'ancien', with a massale selection of Amelia, riparia rootstocks, etc. The wine is very aromatic and expressive, floral and spicy, with the oak nicely folded into the fruit, which is ripe without excess, and the alcohol is also nicely disguised, as it's high but does not show. It's a powerful and full-bodied vintage for this cuve, but keeping its approachability and appeal. The tannins are very fine and the finish quite remarkable. A mini-Pingus at a very different price.

    Bright violet color. Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh boysenberry, floral oils and incense, with suave vanilla and woodsmoke nuances building in the glass. Sweet and plush on the palate, offering intense, smooth dark fruit liqueur and spicecake flavors. Really stains the palate, finishing with superb thrust and clarity; velvety tannins add gentle grip.
