Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm (J.J. Prüm), nestled in the village of Wehlen on the Middle-Mosel, produces truly great German wine with extraordinary longevity. Exceptionally long growing seasons made up of clement days and fresh nights, allow the Riesling grapes, anchored to the near vertical slopes of the banks of the Mosel, to ripen very slowly. This results in a raciness, a finesse and a delicacy of fruit that gives these wines a reputation of being amongst the finest from such a northerly latitude. Once in their full stride, they shine with a terrific sense of breeding and place, elegant in their solidity, sophistication and harmony.
"What a wonderful rarity, particularly in magnum, this tugs at the heartstrings – so pure, ripe, dramatic and enchanting. The nose is superbly complex, honeyed exotic fruit and almonds, hints of tea, stony, briny minerals and very pretty floral aromatics all playing a role. This is a wonderful wine with layered richness and delicacy – all to play for - very fine
Germany produces some of the world’s very finest white wines, presenting natural, grapey richness complemented by racy acidity. A really fine example sets off a roller coaster of emotion akin to a skilfully played piece of music.
