Joh Jos Prum Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese 2013
The Mosel River Valley is probably the most famous and arguably the most admired wine region of Germany. In its wider sense, it includes the adjacent Saar and Rüwer (hence Mosel-Saar-Rüwer), both tributaries of the Mosel River, however it is the middle Mosel (mittelmosel), in particular between and including the towns of Bernkastel-Kues and Erden that the most brilliant wines tend to be produced. Berkastel, Grach, Wehlen, and Zeltingen are some of the most famous wine towns here. All of the vineyards of J.J. Prüm are located within this prestigious strip. The Prüm family history in the Mosel dates back as early as 1156! However Johann Josef Prüm (1873 - 1944), founded the J.J. Prüm estate in 1911.
This is a deep, mineral and tightly wound Badstube. Piercingly racy and juicy with lots of marmalade, the classic red jube and a long pure, sharply delineated, saline close. A brilliant wine that needs time. “Pure, fresh and lovely greenish lemon and grapefruit flavors on the nose of the filigreed but firm 2013 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese lead to a pure, lean and piquant palate with a lovely sweet juiciness and a crisp, lingering, salty minerality. Very quaffable.” Rating: 93 points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
