Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Concentrated peach, apricot and jellied citrus flavors are deep and rich, and this is intensely creamy midpalate, with plenty of anise-tinged smoke notes. The exotic finish of ripe pineapple is long and fruity. Best from 2013 through 2032.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Prum 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese gold capsule – which is not an auction wine – is remarkably redolent of pure honey from its aroma; through its glazed, glycerin-rich, subtly oily palate impression; to a soothing, nearly ineradicable finish. Lemon and apple candy; vanilla cream; and creme de cassis all add to the confectionary richness on display here. Those with a decidedly sweet tooth will be more impressed with this than my score might otherwise predict. (For me, the 2008 is magic by comparison.) I’d forget this in the cellar for 20 years and anticipate 15-20 years active performing career after that.

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. Average annual production is 13,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late, and the wines are very long-lived.

Following the Mosel River as it slithers and weaves dramatically through the Eifel Mountains in Germany’s far west, the Mosel wine region is considered by many as the source of the world’s finest and longest-lived Rieslings.

Mosel’s unique and unsurpassed combination of geography, geology and climate all combine together to make this true. Many of the Mosel’s best vineyard sites are on the steep south or southwest facing slopes, where vines receive up to ten times more sunlight, a very desirable condition in this cold climate region. Given how many twists and turns the Mosel River makes, it is not had to find a vineyard with this exposure. In fact, the Mosel’s breathtakingly steep slopes of rocky, slate-based soils straddle the riverbanks along its entire length. These rocky slate soils, as well as the river, retain and reflect heat back to the vineyards, a phenomenon that aids in the complete ripening of its grapes.

Riesling is by far the most important and prestigious grape of the Mosel, grown on approximately 60% of the region’s vineyard land—typically on the desirable sites that provide the best combination of sunlight, soil type and altitude. The best Mosel Rieslings—dry or sweet—express marked acidity, low alcohol, great purity and intensity with aromas and flavors of wet slate, citrus and stone fruit. With age, the wine’s color will become more golden and pleasing aromas of honey, dried apricot and sometimes petrol develop.

Other varieties planted in the Mosel include Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), all performing quite well here.
