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

Tasted the 2010. Very sweet and crisp.

Baked apple with a hint of peach and apricot on the nose. Well balanced with decent acidity. Had it with a Ceasar salad and it actually paired pretty well. I ordered another bottle for the wine cellar.

The Prum 2009 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese displays an herbal liqueur-like aromatic and palate concentration along with candied expressions of cherry and lime, as well as vanilla, caramel and white raisin. The overall impression then, is quite confectionary, but there is no denying this wine's effusive personality, textural richness, or sheer length... not to mention that it will probably live for 30 or more years, and after the first 15, the sweetness should start to back off significantly. Meantime, I'd personally rather drink the corresponding Spatlese.

This has a matchstick aroma from reduction, while the palate expresses peach, lime and mineral flavors. It has fine density and a keen-edged structure that keeps it detailed and crunchy. Long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2009 through 2030.

Filled to the brim with fresh fruit. Truly exciting, bubbling with fresh peach and honeysuckle aromas. Medium-bodied and sweet, overflowing with apple and peach flavors and a long, fresh finish. Try from 1994.

Prum is unquestionably the most renowned producer in Germany, and often his wines are candidates for best of the vintage. For starters, there is the 1990 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese, with its bouquet of vanilla, apples and minerals. In the mouth there is great fruit, beautifully etched flavors, and a long, crisp, highly extracted finish. Drink this dry Spätlese over the next 7-10 years.

Grapes have been harvested from this favored site since the last millenium, with J.J. Prüm as one of its most notable producers. The medium-bodied frame holds the weight of fig and peach flavors. Well-balanced acid/sugar ratio ensures that this will age well.

This is a gift from the fruit of the vine. To put it simply, ENJOY!

Aromatic, offering smoke, slate, peach and floral aromas. It picks up a lime accent on the palate. Lighter than air, with a silky texture and long, tangy aftertaste. There's a nice combination of intensity and delicacy. Drink now through 2030.
