(Rieslingfeier 2014) I have no words. Head-shaking beauty. Perfectly balanced between the sugars and acidity. This wine clearly aged on its balance and not on any specific element. Clean as a whistle, just light golden color. Hard to imagine this sat in bottle for over 40 years. Really, just wow. Prum always surprises me by showing even better than the last mesmerizing bottle I had.
Rieslingfeier 2014 - BYOB Main event (Rouge Tomate, NYC): Absolutely incredible wine. The palate is a real fireworks display - incredibly complex with layers of fresh fruit, baked apples, honey, bright florality and more savoury mature elements, all coming together seamlessly and conveyed with such purity and elegance. There's still a little lingering sweetness, and powerful acidity beneath that keeps it really light on its feet with a finish that resonates long after each sip. Wow.
Rieslingfeier - BYOB Main Event (Rouge Tomate, NYC): Brought by Joe at our table. Again, crazy spice on the nose. Elegant and dry - lots of spice and spicy aspects, nutty, persimmon and mandarin. Ver dry with lots of lift and great acidity. Class and elegance to burn - airy and endless (not a comment on the finish - but the experience - a spatial analogy to the flavors). Nose - 5/6, Palate - 5.5/6, Finish - 5/6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17/20.
Opened (not decanted) for about 30 minutes before tasting. On the nose, lots of petrol and cotton candy. On the palate, still some good acidity and sweetness, with lots of tangerine and apricot and a long finish. May be a bit past its prime (storage was not the best according to the person who brought it) but still a lovely wine.

(JJ Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese) this was astonishing wine. Perfection in a bottle. Ethereal and graceful with perfectly mature Mosel character. The complexity was mindboggling. The harmony and balance were something to behold. Caramel, slate, baked apples and a garden in full bloom on the nose. The palate easily was the best on any old Mosel wine I have ever had. It was light as a feather but had great sap and intensity. This was almost totally dry too at this point in its evolution. Like spider silk on the palate. I don't break out the spider silk often but this was an apt descriptor for this wine. A great wine and a new benchmark for me when it comes to mature Mosel Riesling.
