After our discussion on the two kabi’s (see my notes on the 18’ Haart Ohligsberg Alte Reben kabi for more info), I asked SC what Prüm brings in terms of a signature… what’s typical of Prüm basically. His answer - sulphides. Hahahahaha. Couldn’t be truer. Took some time for all that to blow away, but once it did… Boah! Our WOTN.

Still so youthful (I’m sure all that sulphides helped). Citrus, peach, white flowers, crushed slate, herbs, and spices. Really filigreed and pure; bringing lots of juiciness in the mid-palate and finishing with an airy feel. Expectedly sweet but very balanced at this stage. So good.

Lime zest, wet limestone, sea water, sweet lime juice finish. A bit of frizzante.

JJ Prüm wines are always reliable, but even given their consistently high quality this bottle was a standout - crisp, clean, perfectly balanced, driven by minerals, green apple, lime and honeysuckle (and powered by petrol), this bottle just rocked Riesling out of the glass. A terrific effort

First time trying this since buying on release. Nice medium gold color, heavy in the glass like oil. Great nose. Notes of apricot, wet stones, petrol, tan spice and some kiwi. Rich and powerful on the mouth. Acidity comes on with air. This has everything you want in a German Riesling. In a great zone with years if not decades of enjoyment in front of it.

Pale gold w a greenish rim. Layered, lacy aromas of citrus, stone, touch of honeyed/caramelized richness. Feeling fresh fruit sweet with excellent balance with the lively acidity.

Cork was really bad after the shipment got here so i decided to open it...
And it was singing.. on the sweet side, i would dare to say feinherb style
Mile feuille, wet stones...super mineral, fresh and in an amazing balance.
Long and good.
Hints of petrol station that go and come back.
