The 2009 Pingus was released last year, but it should still be pretty available. It was harvested on October 5 and 6 under perfect conditions. It is a powerful and concentrated vintage for Pingus. I’m amazed at how much the wine integrated with one extra year in the bottle – the aromas are more precise, starting to reveal the true personality of the wine. The nose is very perfumed and balsamic, with notes of violets and ripe, juicy fruit, quite high-pitched. The oak is well-integrated into the wine. The palate is very powerful, full-bodied, concentrated but balanced, and wearing its 14.5% alcohol lightly, in a very difficult combination of power and elegance, with abundant but silky tannins. Very long aftertaste. 5,600 bottles were produced. Drink: 2015-2035. I believe it’s important to guide readers to select the wines they are going to like the most, and in the case of multiple vintages of the same wine, getting the information through about the style of the year and what the differences between the wines are seems vital. Generally speaking, both 2009 and 2010 were very good vintages for Ribera del Duero, but they are stylistically different. Sisseck makes the comparison between 2009-2010 and 1995-1996, with 2009 and 1995 producing powerful wines, and 2010 and 1996 a little colder, giving wines with more acidity and finesse. It will be fascinating to follow the evolution of the two vintages. The yields are very low in both years, around 11 hectolitres/hectare, and the vinification and upbringing of the wine pretty similar: the whole grapes are fermented in 2,000 litre oak foudres, malolactic was carried out in French oak barriques where the wine was aged for 22 months.

Round and rich, this is still young, showing firm, fresh tannins that frame pure fruit flavors of plum and cassis, along with spice notes that give way to the smoky finish.—Non-blind Pingus vertical (January 2012). Drink now through 2029. 545 cases made.
James Suckling - 95 See more...
Ripeness and freshness here on the nose with loads of dark fruits and bark undertones. Full body, round and crisp tannins. Long and flavorful. Drink or hold now.
