Winemaker Notes

This classical Bernkasteler Badstube Spätlese appeals not by power but by elegance, a pronounced minerality, well integrated fine fruit aromas and flavors and a racy acidity.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Intense, yet delicate and well-sculpted, bursting with ginger, peach and touches of sarsaparilla. Very lively and saturated, delivering a long, rich finish. Loaded with mineral and smoke notes. Drink now through 2025.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

A cider-like sense of apple and spice already in the nose of the Prum 2009 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese (along with a whiff of fermentative funkiness) carries onto a sappy, refreshing palate – joined by dark cherry and cassis – finishing with a sense of fruit skin chew, ingratiating acidity, lip-smacking salinity, and savory suggestions of browned butter and milled grain. The longer this was open, the more interesting and less resistible it became. Expect 20 or more years of delight, but this may well be harder to keep one’s hands off of early-on than is usually the case with Prum Rieslings.

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.
