    April 23, 2020 - Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm with Dr Katharina Prüm (Zoom!): Starting to turn gold. Some hints of kerosene on the nose, with lots of savour. Tremendous mouthcoating opulence. Long, complex and evolving in on the palate - honey, mango, cream - and utterly compelling. Can live 20 years and will improve for at least 10 given the richness. Wondered what to expect from a 2003 but I loved this.

    December 31, 2019 - PNP into Zalto Universal glass (“Flower” day): Medium lemon to the eyes.

    Sweet white flowers, honey, pears, hints of smoke. Quite lifted though not exceptionally complex on the nose.

    Texturally perfect on palate with medium bodied sweetness well balanced by acidity and minerality - certainly not nearly as high as observed for other vintages but still good. Slight petillance. Some tea like flavours on the very gentle finish, good length.

    Textbook Mosel Riesling Auslese indeed. 92-93 points.

    November 30, 2019 - PR 1969 Extravaganza: Honey, graphite, lemon, orange and a slightly earthy note. The palate is fresh, with cut and drive - you'd think the ripeness would stand out more, but it's so controlled and balanced. Lovely stuff.

    November 17, 2018 - Nebbiolos, white truffles, Volume III (Chicago, IL): #09-07, 7% abv. Tons and tons of sponti that take a lot of concerted swirling to go away. Underneath it is a nose with plenty of sweet yellow fruit and a mild herbal note as well. The palate is about as low-acid as you'll ever get with Prum, but that's still plenty to balance out the almost-chewy sweetness. Lots and lots of sweet fruit here, with a slight touch of roastedness from the vintage that doesn't really bother me. Wouldn't surprise me if this wine lasts forever, but honestly, the sweet and juicy primary fruit makes it hard to keep idle hands away from this.

    October 28, 2018 - Nice nose of petrol, honey and tropical notes. Good acidity on the tongue with a long finish. Very nice.
