The quality was great in 2011 and thankfully the quantities were also good. The 2011 wines possess an outstanding balance: their ripe acidity is already well integrated, just as the fruit aromas and flavours, and the pronounced fine minerality. The characters of the different vineyard sites are expressed beautifully in this vintage.
elicate and elegant, with anise and tarragon accents to the crisp apple, grapefruit and ripe citrus flavors. Crystalline notes of mineral and granite put this into relief. Light and airy on the broad finish. Drink now through 2032.
Pale golden yellow. Refined aromas of ripe peach, mango and acacia honey. Creamy and glossy in texture, with a glazed apricot flavor infused with sweet herbal spice. Richer and denser than the spatlese but not obviously better, and long on the finish.
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.
