Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2022 P.F. has the depth and seriousness of the ungrafted vines and the balance of what they consider a great vintage for them. It has 13.5% alcohol, and it's juicy and has round tannins after fermenting and maturing in 4,500-liter oak vats for 10 months. It feels super balanced, serious, with depth and complexity, subtle, nicely integrated, fine-boned and balanced. This feels more harmonious, more than most of the rest of 2022s. It's tasty, subtle and elegant. These last few vintages are a lot more elegant and less rustic than the wines were in the past, and the tannins are fine-grained and round. 18,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2023.

Features

Description

The Ponce Pie Franco wine, an exuberant creation of the Bodega Ponce winery, is presented as an exceptional red wine from the D.O. Manchuela. This wine, made from 100% Bobal grapes, comes from specific plots: P.F Lincha, P.F Olivares and P.F Gallo. These vines, approximately 85 years old, are planted on ungrafted vines, i.e. without rootstock, which gives them a unique authenticity and resistance. Located at an altitude of 850 metres, facing northwest, these vines benefit from a sandy soil and a Mediterranean climate with continental influence.

Winemaking

The viticulture applied is organic and biodynamic, with no soil enrichment or artificial irrigation. Minimal tillage is practised and cover crops are maintained to preserve the soil structure. The grapes are harvested by hand, respecting the natural cycle of the grapes. In the winery, each plot is vinified separately, using indigenous yeasts in 4,500 litre French oak vats. The wine then ages for 10 months in the same vats, without being clarified or filtered before bottling.

Taste

Ponce Pie Franco stands out for its intense and mineral aromatic profile, with a predominance of ripe forest fruits aromas and herbaceous notes such as rosemary and thyme. On the palate, it is lively, stony and mineral, with incipient depth and complexity. The tannins are soft and rounded, providing an elegant texture. It is best served at 16°C and is ideal with meats, stews and cheeses such as Manchego with almonds. This wine, suitable for vegans and vegetarians, is characterised by its balance, seriousness and subtle elegance, reflecting an evolution towards greater finesse compared to previous vintages.
