Jj Prum Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"A cider-like sense of apple and spice already in the nose of the Prum 2009 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese (along with a whiff of fermentative funkiness) carries onto a sappy, refreshing palate – joined by dark cherry and cassis – finishing with a sense of fruit skin chew, ingratiating acidity, lip-smacking salinity, and savory suggestions of browned butter and milled grain. The longer this was open, the more interesting and less resistible it became. Expect 20 or more years of delight, but this may well be harder to keep one’s hands off of early-on than is usually the case with Prum Rieslings. ..91" WA 12/10

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
