1971 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Lange Goldkapsel

Wow, I'm not likely to run into this wine again but what a fabulously balanced, complex and perfectly aged Riesling that's not in the dessert style. There is just the right touch of sweetness with wonderful flavors of green apples, mint, spice, sweet hay and a potpourri of other amazing things. This is balanced by still mouthwatering but subdued acidity which leads to this incredibly pure and complex finish. The fineness of the concentration here is just so perfect and satisfying. And then the fois gras terrine at Cafe Boulud was just an incredible food pairing with this juice. A deeply moving, authentic, classic yet utterly drinkable and balanced wine. It's just hard to explain how good and pure this is. At Rarities, Cafe Boulud.

Interesting experience -- I'd say the flavor profile expressed below is entirely correct. But actually tasting a good riesling for the first time educated me disappointingly -- what people seem to like doesn't appeal to me. Yet. I'll keep trying and I'll see if anything turns me toward the (golden) light.

Un registre inconnu de nous, sur les noix et amandes, les pêches confites, la compote de pommes jaunes. Une complexité incroyable. Un vin très aromatique, avec une texture de velours. Une longueur très grande.

2nd of 18 - pale, some spritz; nuance developing, quite floral, some stone, refreshing lime; light but long and intense, super balance, refreshing fruit. dimension developing hints at much more to come early days yet. I find these wines need about 15 years before they start to develop. Should improve on current fine plus (18/20).

Drank while watching the Monaco GP so did not give this the attention it deserved. It was nice though. The race was a hoot as well.

Drank over 2 nights and better still tonight. The petrol has largely dissipated on night #2 and the palate more expansive. Still very youthfully light colored and fresh with vibrant fruit and slate flavors. Decant next btl.

Not as much acid as I would hope for. Tons of apple flavor. Moderately sweet. Sort of like really tasty alcoholic apple juice. Enjoyable but at this point not an amazing riesling.

Lots of wet stone fruit, slate, grapefruit, kiss of sweetness with elegant acidity keeping it in check which lingers nicely on the finish

Hairy Crab Night 2014 (Capital Restaurant, New Bridge Road, Singapore): JJ Prum WS Aus 2006. This was served a bit warm straight out of the bottle and came across a bit muddled, but it grew with time and air until it showed really nicely. On first pour, the nose was dominated by honeyed aromas and sweet stone fruit. Over the evening though, more subtle shades of orange blossoms and nectar, the white chocolate and vanilla that were typical of the vineyard, and then some gentle mineral tones started emerging to make a nice little bouquet. Likewise, the palate came across very creamy and rich at first, full of sweet flavours of honeyed stone fruit – almost a bit too sweet. However, while this always lacked the cut and drive and some of the stirring acidity of greater vintages, it began to show a nice balance as it cooled down and opened up, displaying depth without weight and some power without heaviness. There were more little nuances as well, with shades of vanilla and white tea and acacia honey, then spicy mineral notes and just the tiniest little prick of citrus towards the finish. This is not quite as thrilling as the best examples of JJ Prum’s WS Aus, but it is a very well-made wine, especially in the context of its vintage. It needs time, probably another 6-8 years, but should do well when it sheds it puppy fat and the more complex nuances start coming to the fore. 92+

Has opened up sine I last tried it in 2013. Pear and quite floral, peach and spice.
Just the right sweetness to balance the medium acidity on the palate Good length and very nice drinking now and over the next 5 years.

2011 Joh. Jos. Prüm Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel

5/17/2015 - Milkmansteve Likes this wine: 94 points

When I first opened this it was obvious it was fast asleep. Everything seemed muted except the rampant, honeyed botrytis. A few hours in a decanter opened this up and exhibited fantastic, ripe fruit. No trace of sulfur or fermentation notes. Fantastic wine that would qualify as a beerenauslese from many vintners. The only thing that kept this from getting a higher score was that, like many 2011 wines, this just seemed kind of fat without the acidity to back it up. Maybe it seems that way because 2011 was bookended by two very high acid vintages, so we acid-heads have been spoiled. But a fabulous dessert wine nonetheless and I'm excited to stash away my last two bottles where they'll be a pleasant surprise a decade from now.

Scallop tiradito with passionfruit and crunchy corn / Salmon tartare with avocado

I was a bit underwhelmed if compared with the 2007 vintage, which seems surprising given that 2008 is touted as a particularly good vintage for Kabinett wines.

Mike Grammer comes to town (Galletto Ristorante, Modesto Ca.): Always a fun starter and palate fresher…perfect balance of sweetness and dry savory minerals…peach, crisp apple, pineapple….wet stone, honeysuckle/lemon blossom florals….well integrated petrol. Super!

This bottle was given about 3 hours of air prior to serving. Once we poured the first glass it was clear that it was open for business. Ripe pineapple was the calling card, and it was accompanied by other tropical fruit elements, a bit of smoke, some honey and a bracing finish. Every sip was fantastic. This is a classic Mosel Auslese from a classic vintage that is in the prime of its life. Drink now and over the next 20 years.

Sweet Jesus, I don't know what Prum managed to do with this vintage but both this and the Goldkapsel are off the hook. Immediately approachable; rich, botrytized fruit; and palpable acidity. This is a bit livelier than the Goldkapsel but the same rich yet light body. Give this a couple days to open up after you pop the bottle and it will thrill you like no other young Riesling. Outstanding.

AP #04-06 (late release) again, and another stunner of a Spätlese. A bit tight and unyielding at first, but slowly unravels with air to reveal layers of incredibly fresh citrus and green apple fruit tinged with smoke, flowers, slate, and a faint whiff of sulfur that lingers for a while. Z's descriptor of crystal pure nails it - there's such incredible purity and transparency to the flavours here, with gentle sweetness and an incredible sense of lightness. Incredible wine, and I'm glad I went long on this.

Late release. Improved dramatically with about two hours of air. On open, it was great, but not exceptional, which it achieved in a few hours. Lime, green apple, chalk, minerality. Crazy minerality and excellent acidity. Long finish. Drink some now AND hold others. You have several, right?

Choucroute Garnie at Sarah and Jonathan's (Theater District, Manhattan, NYC): AP #31. Nose of smoke, golden, honey, apple, rich - maybe getting a bit tired. Sweet, stunning on the palate - mature and creamy, botrytis but melded with great structure. Sugar, spicy, peach - humming, cream soda. Nose - 4.5/6, Palate - 6/6, Finish - 5-5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17-17.5/20.

Developing as hoped in my 2013 note.
Hintette of diesel on nose. Crisp russet apple, backbone of minerality and vibrant acidity to balance. Off-dry. Excellent grip and decent length.
Just hitting a drinking plateau that should last five years or so and with the structure for fleshing out and gaining another point or so.
The sort of wine I could drink all the time!!
