About Joh. Jos. Prüm: "Few estates in the world can claim to have maintained the highest quality standards uninterrupted for half a century and more.  Joh Jos Prüm, the most famous of the many Mosel wine estates bearing the Prüm name, is one estate that can.  Since the early 1920’s its wines have been among Germany’s best, Rieslings with the Mosel’s vivacious aroma and racy elegance in its highest form.”  -  Stuart Pigott, The Wine Atlas of Germany

The wines, whether a modest Kabinett or an opulent Beerenauslese, are the epitome of filigree elegance: light in body but intense in flavour, exquisitely balanced and precisely tuned, and capable of the most extra-ordinary longevity.  With the rise of so many excellent winemakers in the region, one might have supposed that J.J. Prüm, with its profound conservatism, might have been overtaken and left behind. Not a bit of it. The Estate remains where it has been for decades: at the summit.”  -  Stephen Brook, The Wines of Germany, Mitchell Beazley

Mosel Fine Wines, Issue 59

The 2020er Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett has a cool, reserved, and fresh nose of stone fruits, yellow peach, herbs, and plenty of earthy spices. The wine proves juicy and more fruit-driven on the palate, where some ripe yellow peach and pear make for a smoother side. This broader side is nicely wrapped into herbs and candied grapefruit in the medium-long and well-delineated finish. The wine gains finesse and freshness as it unfolds and clearly needs a couple of years to fully deliver. There is potential here! 2027-2040.
