Prum

It should come as no surprise that Joh. Jos. Prüm is Mosel royalty. As a benchmark for fine German Riesling the wines are a mainstay for nearly every serious wine collector and for good reason—they are simply one of the best. With an average age of fifty-year-old vines (most of which are ungrafted) the Prüms have large holdings of Germany’s most treasured crown jewels: Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and Wehlener Sonnenuhr.

After the stellar 2015 and 2016’s can Germany hit the bull’s eye three years in a row? The short answer is a resounding YES. 2017 is fantastic. There is very little not to like here– vibrant fruit balanced by good acidity, excellent concentration and fantastic texture. “Already from cask in December, some of the finest 2017 wines resonated with us like few wines did before. This is confirmed in the bottle now. The purity of the peach, the finely citrusy framework, the brilliance and, above all, the utter elegance and delicate presence of the finest 2017 wines are simply mind-blowing, and this in all stylistic directions.” reports Mosel Fine Wines. “The vintage is a stunner at the top and generated some of the finest Riesling ever made.”

More serious than the 2016’s, we urge collectors and newcomers to not miss this vintage, especially for the Spatlese and Auslese. Make no mistake, these wines are worth hunting down for your cellar.We are very proud to offer this 2017 pre-arrival to you.
