2017 Joh Jos Prum Riesling
Best Ever Lineup from
One of Germany's Most Iconic Producers 

 

2017 Joh Jos Prum will go down as one of the finest vintages for this iconic Riesling producer. Extraordinary depth and dimension, but with superb finesse and elegance, there are probably not enough superlatives to describe the wines. It was not an easy vintage by any stretch of the imagination. The start was very difficult due to hail, and then severe drought made it tough going. Seemingly, producers were constantly at the mercy of mother nature, but in the end the wines were able to be picked over a long October period, and the result was excellent.

 

2017 J.J. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese GoldKapsel

98 WA / 96 WS

$97.98/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese (Gold Capsule), AP 17 18, is deep and flinty on the perfectly ripe, intense and tropical-scented nose with its ripe yellow nectarine and peach aromas. The wine exhibits very fine botrytis with crunchy-salty slate features on the palate and is racy-piquant, highly stimulating, crisp and crunchy on the finish, with lingering salinity. This 2017 Sonnenuhr is still very young and needs time to calm down but is still lush and fresh, and the bottle will be emptied before you have even thought about the wine. It's very long, complex and tensioned-just fabulous. Tasted in March 2019. Stephan Reinhardt - The Wine Advocate

 

2017 J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel   

98 WA

$97.98/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

The 2017 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (Gold Capsule), AP 15 18, is a highly attractive and refined Riesling with beautifully clear and aromatic fruit (yellow plums and nectarines at the moment) intermingled with fine flinty aromas of broken slate. This is the perfection of beauty and finesse, as it is so delicate, highly refined and elegant on the silky-textured and stimulatingly salty palate. If you love Prum, this is the wine you would probably want to die with. It has the perfect balance of finesse yet is still highly digestible. You'll fall in love with this, no doubts at all. Tasted in March 2019. Stephan Reinhardt - The Wine Advocate

 

2017 J.J. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese

97 WA

$48.98/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is intense and concentrated on the nose, with raisin, grapefruit and even vegetable aromas at the moment. This is highly attractive and noble on both the nose and palate. The wine is lush and dense on the palate but highly elegant, crystalline and fine, revealing a highly stimulating, salty-piquant and intensely aromatic and complex finish. This is an outstanding wine, and it's highly digestible. Tasted in March 2019. Stephan Reinhardt - The Wine Advocate

 

2017 J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Auslese 

96 WA / 94 WS

$48.98/bottle (pre-arrival) Buy Now

 

The 2017 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese is coolish, bright and fresh on the still-reductive but attractive nose with its fine Riesling and slate aromas. The wine is salty-piquant and terribly fresh on the palate, with very fine Riesling and crispy-salty slate expressions. This Auslese is highly refined, crystalline and more intellectual compared to the Badstube, but hedonists would take it as well. A gorgeous, highly digestible Auslese. Tasted in March 2019. Stephan Reinhardt - The Wine Advocate
