Joh-Jos-Prum Winery

The Mosel River Valley is probably the most famous and arguably the most admired wine region of Germany. In its wider sense, it includes the adjacent Saar and Rüwer (hence Mosel-Saar-Rüwer), both tributaries of the Mosel River, however it is the middle Mosel (mittelmosel), in particular between and including the towns of Bernkastel-Kues and Erden that the most brilliant wines tend to be produced. Berkastel, Grach, Wehlen, and Zeltingen are some of the most famous wine towns here. All of the vineyards of J.J. Prüm are located within this prestigious strip. The Prüm family history in the Mosel dates back as early as 1156! However Johann Josef Prüm (1873 - 1944), founded the J.J. Prüm estate in 1911. Dr Manfred Prüm has led the estate since 1969. Now his daughter Katharina is taking over the mantle. The 13.5 hectare estate includes some 70% of ungrafted vines (because the phylloxera louse cannot survive in these slate soils.)

WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
 
“Few estates in the world can claim to have maintained the highest quality standards uninterrupted for half a century and more.  Joh Jos Prüm, the most famous of the many Mosel wine estates bearing the Prüm name, is one estate that can.  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.”  Stuart Pigott, The Wine Atlas of Germany
 
“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.  With the rise of so many excellent winemakers in the region, one might have supposed that J.J. Prüm, with its profound conservatism, might have been overtaken and left behind. Not a bit of it. The Estate remains where it has been for decades: at the summit.”  Stephen Brook, The Wines of Germany, Mitchell Beazley

Joh Jos Prum Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese 2011


93 Points Wine Spectator

There's a certain retro, boiled lolly character here along with notes of more exotic fruits. The palate is restrained and supple with a fluffy levity on the palate and irrepressible length. Already the 2011 Auslese look to have more intense perfumes and more textured palates than their 2010 counterparts. "Golden yellow. Delicate aromas of pineapple, mango and oyster shell. Juicy, full-bo .....

Joh Jos Prum Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese GOLDKAPSEL 2011


95 Points Wine Advocate

"The aromatic complexity is something to behold; floral notes, green papaya and cactus lead seamlessly to a forceful yet shimmering and energetic palate. A powdery structure somehow keeps all generosity in check; the fruit is never too heavy, never too ripe. The wine finishes with a gripping intensity that lingers on and on. The 2011 Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese gold capsule, notes Katharin .....

Joh Jos Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese 2011


92 Points International Wine Cellar
94 Points Wine Spectator

This took a while to open although when it did... wow. A layered palate infused with ripe apple, honey and preserved lemon pulp all shot through with a jolt of cleansing elderflower tang. Sits in the mouth with unnerving presence, authority and delicacy at the same time. Complexity + class plus. A Graacher for the ages. "Pale golden yellow. Lively aromas of peach pit, honeysuckle and candied .....

Joh Jos Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese 2011


93 Points Wine Spectator

"Features a savory aroma, with flavors to match, showing good acidity to the juicy apple, pear and white currant flavors. Curry notes extend on the finish, displaying plenty of cream. Powerfully structured and deep with spice. Drink now through 2032." 93 Points Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator

Joh Jos Prum Kabinett 2012

"Drawn mainly from the Estate's greatest sites, this is an outstanding Prüm Kab but one that is sill tightly wound. It combines weightlessness with intensity and focus. Never as intense as the vineyard specific wines, this floral and delicate Kabinett is sappy, floral and almost dry tasting with dainty, vibrant fruit and ripe, fruity acidity. We'd have to think long and hard befo .....

Joh Jos Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2011


93 Points Wine Spectator
17/20 Points Julia Harding

Incredibly airy across this palate this is, as always the wine that asks for the most patience. There are wonderful, crystalline citrus and apricot fruit notes on both the nose and palate and a super long, zesty, almost saline close that leaves the palate vibrating. Wonderful now, it will be profound with age. "Delicate and elegant, with anise and tarragon accents to the crisp apple, grapefr .....

Joh Jos Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese GOLDKAPSEL 2012


95 Points Wine Advocate

"Broader shoulders here with a nose suggesting sticky, ripe peach with ripe apricot and nectarine as well. The tightly-wound palate continues the orchard-fruit theme yet such is the savoury complexity and intense lightness, sweetness seems to play an understated, supporting role. An anthem to this amazing vineyard and this amazing grower. Pale golden yellow. Apricot, quince and persimmon domi .....
