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

Big petrol and rubber nose with smoky notes. Rich and honied with a touch of botrytis and an almost syrupy character that keeps the wine simple though with just enough acidity to keep it drinkable. Too young for this one. Wait 3 years.

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.

highly aromatic, cantaloupe, apricots with a viscous palate of rich fruit flavors combined with little nuances of slate

Brilliant minerality on the nose, almost a bit of sea air. Crisp acidity perfectly balanced with the residual sugar. Silky smooth on the palette with that minerality, floral notes, and a touch of apricot. Light and refreshing.

Pure and delicate, yet strong mineral and florals on the nose. Showing nice apple and peach notes and good mineral mixed in. Delicious and well balanced. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/10/10

A tightly coiled seam of mineral slatey-ness and tangy grip keeps the stunning package of concentrated stone fruits, pastilles, smoke, pungent citrus and white florals, all tightly woven and ravishingly refreshing. It's an Auslese for the ages, so much so that you could fill a room with this wine's ambition.

Subtle floral bouquet with peach skin and acacia blossom. Bright, slightly tart apple with a refreshing, persistent acidity. This invigorating wine has an appealing finish.

Excellent structure, ripe aromas and flavors of stone fruits (like peach), a fine minerality, great depth and length. Unique harmony, finesse and expression after aging. Fine, yet racy with elegance and complexity. Beautiful balance between fine minerality, crisp acidity, expressive fruit aromas and flavors.

Crunchy yet nicely fleshed out, with good cut to the citrus and mineral notes that accent the apple and grapefruit flavors. Features firm acidity and a finish that echoes with ripe melon hints. Drink now through 2018.

This features ripe lime and slate notes on an elegant frame, with lively hints of white chocolate and vanilla. The rich finish of peaches and cream is accented by light, smoky notes. Drink now through 2020.

Cask sample. Very smoky/reductive light note of rubber but not unpleasant especially when you can imagine where the wine is going once it is bottled. Fine bright apricot fruit. It is sweet but somehow you hardly notice the sweetness within the harmony of fruit and acidity and minerality. Dense but very light on its feet. Long. 17/20 VGV (JH) Jancis Robinson.

A racy style, with flinty notes to the fresh-cut apple and crunchy peach flavors, matched to a slightly viscous salinity. Lemon zest lingers on the well-structured finish, revealing hints of passion fruit. Drink now through 2020.
