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.The Estate remains where it has been for decades: at the summit. So, what is the secret is to the quality of the J.J. Prüm wines? How is it that they differ so much in style and quality from the wines of most other Mosel producers? The answer, as always, lies mostly in the majesty of the vineyards (backed up by meticulous winemaking): great sites, old vines, the lowest yields, very late harvesting and selection of only the best berries.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Delicate exotic-fruit, apples and fresh herbs on the nose and a medium-bodied, concentrated palate with bright acidity and stony minerality. It drives long and hums with sweet grape.

Expert review

The 2019 Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese is coolish and flinty on the slate-dominated nose that reveals an intense but herbal and terroir-driven bouquet. Sweet and finessed on the palate, this is a crystalline, elegant and salty-piquant Spätlese with a still astringently mineral finish. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.

Wine Advocate

The Grape

Riesling

A very special white grape variety that makes aromatic, age worthy and incredibly fine wines that are loved by wine connoisseurs the world over. Made most famous for the exceptional expressions that come out of Germany, Riesling epitomises white wine of elegance, finesse and complexity. From bone dry to intensely sweet, there's a broad spectrum of expressions ranging from lean and crisp flavours of lime, green apple, pear, jasmine and chalky minerality, to richly flavoured and highly perfumed expressions with Thai basil, saffron, ginger, papaya, nutmeg and honey. Incredible wines and alway good value!
