Stunning wine. Beautiful nose of smoky slate, yellow fruit and saline. Palate is full and rich with zippy acidity which caries ripe peach, lemon candy, mango skin, stones, slate, smoke, and pepper. Gorgeously balanced Spatlese with big acidity to balance out the weight and RS. The texture is beautiful with the wine feeling velvety smooth and almost rolling down the side of the palate while the middle sees a powerful acidic backbone that's isn't bracing, but promises great life ahead.
Young but in my mind theres never a bad time for Prum. This is fantastic. Loads of melon, honey, passion fruit and apricot both in the nose and palate. Bracing acidity is just enough to keep things moving even as the wine warms in the glass. This lingers in the palate.
Another stellar showing. Drop-dead sexy bouquet. Incredible depth, roundness, palate-coating mouthfeel, and balance. Perfect sweetness, stalwart grip, mind-bending finish. Likely to pair well with a broad range of foods. Crazy value!
White gold in colour. Popped and poured. 'Delicious' in one word. The 2010 is in between at the mo, less than the explosive fruit of the '12, and yet to build towards a 10 year old German Riesling. Mild passion fruit and honeycomb nose. Passion fruit, tropical, mineral, honeyed sweetness, silky entry, medium full body, pineapple, sweet ripe peach, golden goodness in a glass. Tempered sweetness through the long finish.
The Prüm Dinner (Chicago, IL): #22-11, 8.5% abv. If there was one wine that really didn't show that well tonight, this would be it. Lovely spice notes on the nose, but it's the acidity that really sets this one apart in the flight. Despite the fresh acidic lift, there wasn't much else in this bottle right now. Let them sleep; they'll be killer in a decade (or two!).
