Having just attained it's drinking credentials at age 21, this Mosel Riesling sang with a mid-day Thanksgiving repast.
Medium gold color. Aromas of quince paste, grilled apricot, warm stones and a deep caramel/roasted note. Balanced, though likely too sweet for many these days. Just integral and composed, a unit in and of itself. — 2 days ago
My bottle was in perfect shape and had aged perfectly. Fresh pineapple followed by crisp green apple. Outstanding wine and ready to drink now. Not over sweet like many Ausleses, but instead, perfectly balanced and perfect with Chinese food. This Riesling has a precision to its flavors that is extraordinary — 2 months ago
Rich honeyed apricot, good acid to keep the sweetness in balance. — 4 months ago
After our discussion on the two kabi’s (see my notes on the 18’ Haart Ohligsberg Alte Reben kabi for more info), I asked SC what Prüm brings in terms of a signature… what’s typical of Prüm basically. His answer - sulphides. Hahahahaha. Couldn’t be truer. Took some time for all that to blow away, but once it did… Boah! Our WOTN.
Still so youthful (I’m sure all that sulphides helped). Citrus, peach, white flowers, crushed slate, herbs, and spices. Really filigreed and pure; bringing lots of juiciness in the mid-palate and finishing with an airy feel. Expectedly sweet but very balanced at this stage. So good. — 11 days ago
Not as super acidic as the Fritz Haag, but still very strong acid balance to the sweetness. Liked a lot! — 4 months ago
Pretty pale straw/lemon with green reflexes . Quite delicate and subtle on the nose , white flowers , touch of lemon and ripe apple, just a hint of mint . On the palate ripe yellow fruits , touch of citrus , ripe apple . Very balanced with good acidity and delicate sweetness. Weightless on the palate, quite spherical in mouthfeel, perhaps it is just missing a touch of length and mineral complexity. Drinking well now though absolutely no rush , will probably improve over the next 5-10 years . — 2 months ago
