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

Lemon, apple, blackcurrant, peach, honeysuckle, mint, and narcissus inform the nose and palate. An invigorating alliance of citrus, apply tartness, crushed stone, and salty minerality carries into a generous, irresistible finish. Here is the epitome of delicacy and transparency in Mosel Riesling. While might be a sense in which this is marginally less profound than its fellow Prum Spatlesen, that does not make it any less delicious. Moreover, the record is clear that wines from Himmelreich are among the longest-lived and ultimately most profound of any from this address. Green apple, lemon oil and clover on the nose. Light and livel...

Notes of poached pear, baking spice, anise and wet stone with an underlying green apple note. This is taught and focused from start to finish. A great display of high toned fruits of green apple, sage and anise leading into ripe cling peach and fin... Geoffrey Binder.
