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...

I tasted the bottled 2015s, the about-to-be-bottled 2016s and some barrel samples of the 2017s with Peter Sisseck. 2016 could be the modern version of 1996, and in 2015, a warmer vintage that could have turned into something similar to 2011, the wines have great freshness and are closer to 2010 than 2011, even if the years are completely different. 2015 Pingus is terrific and 2016 Pingus can be another legend in the making... I also had the chance to preview the 2017s in barrel, and I felt the wines were very young and resisted writing them up. Sisseck considers it one of the most challenging vintages he has seen in Ribera del Duero, and he plans on having shorter élevage. But the 2017 Pingus was very precise and harmonious, even at such young age. Something to look forward to in the future.
