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

From the first smell in the glass, one could tell blind folded, this wine was outstanding! Joh Jos Rieslings are designed to age and I was lucky to witness how they can develop over a 27 years period! A wonderful nose of honey suckle and peach. The mouthfeel is luscious, with a very well integrated sweetness. The acidity is still there and gives even more depth on the back palate. Voluptuous and silky, the wine just keeps lasting in the mouth. The finish is mineral with hints of apricot flavours. Simply Gorgeous! A must have if you can find it! QC
