Top 10 Riesling Producers

GDP puts together his list of the best producers of this fine wine

Joh. Jos. Prum

Of all the producers in my cellar, I wish I had more of the often impenetrable but ultimately profound wines of J.J. Prum. Prum uses plenty of sulfur to ensure the longevity of his wines, so in their youth they can stink a bit. Given time, like 10 or 20 years time, and they turn into absolutely magical bottles of wine.

Two wines I enjoy:

Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese $45

Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese $45

Comments

  • Yes well done in identifying Donnhoff Riesling. We think it close to perfection, as not excessively limey or acid, which can be weaknesses with R. Our dry riesling from them matches well with Fish and Chips (as does most dry riesling to be fair) but also cold turkey, roast pork, and has just been ordered for the Autumn.
    Trimbach and Grosset polish Hill are others enjoyed in the past. we liked Watervale area Rieslings in past times from Australia, and if you ever get chances to taste Alsace Grand crus take them, especially if given a vineyard name or "Clos" on the label, e.g Clos St Hune. These will have that fabulous whiff of petrol and great mineral complexity and length

    Don`t miss a bottle by Leitz from the Rheingau...also, there are many great producers from the mossel like the ever full filling Fritz Haag, but I was recently surprised by those by Reinhold Haart specially those coming from the Goldtröpfchen vineyard in Piesport which might even give you dark fruits in the nose.
    Finally, from the Pfalz, where there also are a bunch of pretty good producers, I'd like to recall Koehler Ruprecht for his full bodied and evolved wines
