2016 Joh Jos Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese
The 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (AP 09 17) shows very fine botrytis and orange tea character on the delicate and nicely concentrated nose. Very elegant, piquant and lush on the palate, with mineral expression, refreshment and persistent structure, this is a serious and complex Auslese of great class. Highly recommended.
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate #236 (Apr 2018)
This is another Prüm 2016 seductively loaded with floral perfume, but here it’s bittersweet, suggesting gentian and iris as well as honeysuckle. The palate and superbly sustained finish deliver delicacy allied to silken richness and gloss, featuring intense pear, pineapple, quince and almond paste flavors together with striking transparency to stony and maritime mineral nuances.
David Schildknecht - Vinous
A rich and delicate Auslese with plenty of depth, but a light touch at the long graceful finish. Drink or hold. This is a wine that has a couple of decades ahead of it.
