Robert Parker: 92/100 (Flor de Pingus 2010 )The 2010 Flor de Pingus is raised in 40% to 50% new French oak (Darnajou and Taransaud). It has a superb bouquet that is taut at first, but unfolds beautifully with very pure small dark cherries, cassis, orange blossom and a faint, attractive note of strawberry cheesecake. The palate is medium-bodied with sumptuous, plush tannins counterbalanced by the crisp thread of acidity. It has great clarity and tension with vibrant allspice and white pepper notes towards the finish that closes down a little, suggesting that it will need two or three years in bottle. Excellent. Drink 2015-2025. Available from The Rare Wine Company: $90 per bottle.

Tasting Notes: Violets, scrub, limestone minerality very present, very lively on the palate with elegance and length. Very young. Hopefully minimum 3-4 years even to begin to appreciate its virtues.
