Peach and vanilla aromas. Broad, polished and creamy, yet it lies slightly, even delicately, on the palate. Brown spice, mango and banana suggest the vintagersquo;s extreme ripeness without conveying any overt sense of botrytis. Static yet imposingly rich and layered on the finish.

This is an archetypal Pruuml;m Auslese, from its aristocratic poise and silky finesse to its vibrant energy and crystalline complexity. Its sleek fuselage of fruit feels succulent without needing to be overly rich, and its subtle, mineral-drenched flavors unfold in kaleidoscopic detail on the long and fragrant finish. At the same time, its youthfulness is almost painfully evident, a reminder that drinking this wine in optimum maturity is a pleasure that wonrsquo;t be experienced for at least another two or three decades.

Quince preserves, baked apple, lily, gardenia, and hints of caramel and vanilla mark the nose of the Pruuml;m 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese. With richness yet delicacy and lift it saturates the palate with rich fruit, liquid flowers, vanilla cream, and savory, saline, shrimp shell reduction-like mineral essences. This intense, pure, subtly and truly nobly botrytized Auslese has umami with a capital ldquo;U.rdquo;

Stunning. Very aromatic and expressive, offering rose, apricot, lime and mineral notes allied to a clear, gossamer frame. Itrsquo;s well-balanced, though soft in structure and forward today. It should pick up more intensity on the finish with age. Best from 2008 through 2028.

Fragrant and silky, this builds in intensity on the palate, unfolding its peach, lime and slate flavors elegantly and persistently to what seems like a never-ending finish. Itrsquo;s lightweight and beautifully balanced mdash; what the Mosel does best. Pruuml;mrsquo;s wines age beautifully, so donrsquo;t hesitate to lay a bottle or two away for 20 years.

Pale golden yellow. Classy bouquet of ripe apple, vanilla and sweet herbs. Rich on the palate, with a salty, resinous character and undeniably sweet apricot fruit. Unctuous yet vibrantly spicy, with a long, complex finish. This still needs time but will be a great auslese.

Pure, precise and fresh-tasting, with an intense clarity to the apple, pear and tangerine flavors that feature notes of slate and vanilla. The crystalline finish is long, pure and precise, with hints of smoke and anise. Best from 2014 through 2040.
