2015 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Mosel

SKU #1279761 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is brimming with white peach and aromatic apple, but the remarkable thing about it is the way it manages to pack so much expression into such a sleek frame. The mineral acidity really drives the finish along. Just beginning to open up, but with 20 and more years ahead of it. Inner quote mark

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark This 8.5 percent alcohol bottling features site-typical prominence of lemon and grapefruit with bittersweet suggestions of citrus peels, cassis and huckleberry. Lithe and polished, it finishes with stimulating brightness, rapier penetration, and prodigious persistence. Sweetness is the last thing you’re apt to think about while drinking it. Time will certainly bring further complexity, though crystalline and alkaline stony notes already lend nearly limitless intrigue. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

K&L Notes

Just upstream from the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr is the Graacher Himmelreich. With deeper, richer soils, this site is a little less steep and its south-west exposure ensures the wines from this site always have a racy and juicy acid background that really makes them sing. Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm was founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm. Today it is owned and managed by Dr. Manfred Prüm and his daughter Dr. Katharina Prüm. They focus solely on Riesling from famous sites like Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and Bernkasteler Badstube. They are currently one of only nine wine estates in Germany ranked five stars by Gault Millau, which is the European wine world’s equivalent to the Michelin guide. Their Rieslings are renowned for their aging potential and are sought after by collectors.

A very floral and dry style of kabinett. Very refreshing and a perfect accompaniment to a spicy Thai lunch.

The wines of Joh Jos Prum are some of the best in the world, and a great value for their pedigree and cellar worthiness. They last for decades- generations even, and never fail to wow. The 2015 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett's biggest barrier to ageing will be how good it tastes now... I recommend off site storage if you want to age it! This has the spice and power of a big Mosel wine, but also texture and grace. The slatey finish goes on forever!
Drink from 2017 to 2045
