One of Germany's iconic estates, Joh. Jos. Prüm are owners of some of the finest vineyards of the Mosel. Run for years by Manfred Prüm, the estate is now led by his daughter Katherina, who continues to make what can only be described as benchmark Mosel Riesling. The wines are always pin-sharp and made for the long term.
After a series of warmer years, 2021 is a much more classic vintage, one which suits the Prüm style. To quote Jean Fisch & David Rayer of Mosel Fine Wines “2021 is a completely unique vintage with some of the finest Mosel wines we have ever tasted! Readers should plunge upon the brilliant fruity-styled wines, which have the lightness of the finest vintages ever in the region.”
At Joh. Jos. Prüm the vintage is a particular success. To quote Fisch & Meyer again: “Katharina Prüm and her team have managed to get the best out of the 2021 vintage and have translated its lightness and finesse in the most brilliant way.”
Our shipment of the 2021 Prüms has just arrived and, having opened a couple of bottles, we can confirm that these are magically compelling wines, and wines that will keep and keep should you be so inclined. It is hard to describe the energy, precision and taut balance of these brilliant Rieslings.
