Founded in 1911 the J J Prum estate is seen as one of the greatest and most consistent of not only the famed middle Mosel but the entire country.
Occupying a prime stretch of vineyards all adjoining each other on the same river bank, the similar yet unique soil profiles producers wines of fine structure, immense beauty and supreme age worthiness. Always brightly aromatic and distinct of each site from dry through to richer expressions these are wines of detail and grace that are a must for any collection.
Bernkasteler is a less steep slope but with deeper soils compared to its counterparts. Beautifully off dry if somewhat shy at the moment. Opens superbly in the glass with air showing fine notes of almond creme, mint and smokey minerals with a fine floral nose. Svelte and pure with a nicely weighted palate that lingers long on the finish.
Another fine example of the exceptional vintage that 2020 is and proof that such a classic estate under the expert skill of Katerina is still setting the pace for what premium German riesling is and should be.
