Localization: Mosel, Germany
Tasting Notes: On the nose, fresh and minerally with floral aromas and flavors. On the palate, very juicy, racy, and precise.
94 Points - James Suckling: Generous pear fruit and substance for a Kabinett, but they're married to bright, citrusy acidity that makes this uplifting and appealing. Just beginning to show its considerable finesse. Drink or hold.
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast: Succulent flavors of pineapple, lemon, and mango dance and dart on the palate of this spry little Kabinett. It's an intensely fruity, juicy sip but anchored by a reverberating backbone of acidity and lingering notes of earth, smoke, spice, and animal. Delightful already, but there's so much potential for cellaring, too.
Food Pairing: Pair with Asian dishes or cheese and desserts.
The Domain: For centuries the Prüm family has called the village of Wehlen home. The 33.5-acre estate consists of nearly 70% ungrafted vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube, and Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen. The average annual production is 13,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late, and the wines are very long-lived.
