2007 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel Mosel

SKU #1044151 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule is proof that 40 years after the Summer of Love "Flower Power" is still a viable concept, at least chez Prum. Sweetly perfumed gardenia, decadent lily, bitter-sweet iris ... all cavort in a matrix of apple and quince preserves, vanilla and lemon cream, honey and white raisin. And for all of its richness, sweetness is the last thing on your mind while this wine is on the table. I imagine you could simply inhale its entire, vast sensual contents, so ethereal is every aspect of it. And if that doesn’t get you high, then you’re no Mosel wine lover! (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2009)

Outer quote mark Golden yellow. Christmas fruitcake with cherry, white raisin and honeyed botrytis on the nose. Glossy, creamy and rich on the palate, with fine slate, brown spice and floral elements woven into a braid of flavors. The botrytis component adds complexity on the complex, mineral-driven finish. What an auslese! (JBP) Inner quote mark (1/2009)

95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Rounder and richer than Prüm's white-capsuled Auslese, this infuses its floral citrus and stone fruit flavors with a soft yet insistent slatiness, feeling elegant, multifaceted and finely detailed. It's creamy in texture, backed by lively acidity that enlivens the aromas and elongates the finish, and as is typical for a Prüm wine, the balance is impeccable. Inner quote mark (10/2009)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of the most remarkable things about the J.J. Prüm wines is their ability to marry richness with lightness, and that's well displayed in this auslese. The aromas are funky-stinky at first, yet with aeration those scents merge with tropical fruit to become an indescribably complex, seamless whole. Extremely long on the finish, with echoes of passion fruit lingering for minutes afterward. Drink now-2040. *Cellar Selection* (JC) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very concentrated, yet also very clean, refined and pure. Slate, honey and vanilla aromas and flavors prevail, with hints of peach and lime peeking through. It all culminates in a long, mercurial finish. Best from 2012 through 2040. (BS, Web Only-2009) Inner quote mark

89-92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The auction Gold Kap from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr shows a fair bit of clean botrytis under its sulfur blockage, and will probably end up being a lovely example of the vintage. However, today the wine seems rather soft on the backend for a 2007er, but this may just be the state the wine is in currently. The nose shows notes of glazed pears, apples, bee pollen, slate, gentle notes of petrol and flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full, nicely focused and quite long on the finish, but without the real bounce and raciness of so many other 2007 Gold Kaps on display in Trier. I am sure it will turn out just fine in the end, but the 195 € per bottle paid seemed like a very stiff tariff for this wine. (Drink between 2020-2040) Inner quote mark (9/2008)
