Wine is a kind of bottled energy and there is no producer that packs more voltage into their bottles than Joh. Jos. Prüm. The Prüm family history in the Mosel dates back as early as 1156, though it was Johann Josef Prüm (1873 – 1944) who founded the estate in 1911. Under Johann Josef’s son, Sebastian, by the mid-1930s the distinctive style of the Prüm wines had been forged. From 1969, the imitable Dr Manfred Prüm would take the reputation Joh. Jos. Prüm to even greater heights, and today the estate is run by Manfred’s daughter Katharina Prüm who watches over 13.5 precious hectares of vines perched on the vertiginous slate-rich slopes of the Middle Mosel.

Tasting Notes

89 Points Mosel Fine Wines
The 2020er Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett has a cool, reserved, and fresh nose of stone fruits, yellow peach, herbs, and plenty of earthy spices. The wine proves juicy and more fruit-driven on the palate, where some ripe yellow peach and pear make for a smoother side. This broader side is nicely wrapped into herbs and candied grapefruit in the medium-long and well-delineated finish. The wine gains finesse and freshness as it unfolds and clearly needs a couple of years to fully deliver. There is potential here!
