Joh. Jos. Prum Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese 2011

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

An intense mix of mineral and savory spice accents the peach cobbler and apple compote flavors. A Key lime note comes to the fore on the graceful, creamy finish, which is long and richly spiced. Drink now through 2040.

J.J. Prüm is a member of the Großer Ring Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter. The estate has 14 acres of holdings in the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube and Zeltinger Sonnenuhr vineyards. Only Riesling is grown and harvested at these sites. The most important of these sites are Wehlener Sonnenuhr and Graacher Himmelreich, in terms of both quantity and quality for the winery. Seventy percent of the vines are ungrafted. Depending on the vintage, the average annual production is 10,000 to 13,000 cases of wine. Stuart Pigott says of J.J. Prum that "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". Wine writer Stephen Brook says that "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".  Read less

Site-typical lime and dark cherry accented by cherry pit make for a Prum 2010 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese at once liqueur-like in richness; juicily, vivaciously citric; and invigorating in its combination of subtly cyanic, chewy, saline, and zesty finishing impingements. Like so many of the more successful wines of its vintage, this also uncannily combines palpable senses of high extract with levity, its high acid and low alcohol reinforcing one another’s encouragement of vivacity and refreshment such as are seldom derived from a wine at this level of ripeness. This deeply flavorful, vibrant, and not in the least superficially sweet Auslese is I feel sure going to go strong for more than another 30 years. (Would that I could so easily imagine myself living to test that prognosis!)
