While other Spanish wines have achieved international recognition, Pingus is one of the very few that has joined the ranks of the world’s most coveted wines. Like Coche-Dury’s Corton-Charlemagne, Guigal’s single-vineyard Côte Rôties, or Giacomo Conterno’s Monfortino, Pingus is known and admired wherever great wine is discussed. Pingus is produced by the visionary Danish winemaker Peter Sisseck. Peter arrived in Spain in 1993 to manage a new project, Hacienda Monasterio. While planting and developing Monasterio, he began to dream about the old vines he saw dotted around the Ribera del Duero landscape. By the 1995 vintage, Peter had found several ancient vineyards that inspired him to make his own wine. He called it “Pingus,” after his childhood nickname. One can only imagine what the reactions were like when Peter showed up in Bordeaux at the March 1996 en primeur tastings. Yet, by the end of the week, Pingus was perhaps the greatest story of that season’s futures campaign.

Robert Parker - 87 See more...
The 1997 Pingus displayed the same herbaceous note that was noted in its youth by Robert Parker and with age it is simply part of a rather dour bouquet that lacks the joie-de-vivre one finds on other vintages. The palate is nothing to really be ashamed of, but it lacks excitement and ambition. If I had any bottles in my cellar, I would enjoy what you get out of them now, as I suspect they are best their best. Drink now.
