Very complex. The palate has a profound, concentrated core of rich lime and kumquat flavor and the acidity arcs upwards and really clams the fruit, wrapping it in tight. It then unleashes a thunderous mineral phase that blows long through the finish. Spectacular. Drink over the next two decades. collapse

This is the perfection of beauty and finesse, as it is so delicate, highly refined and elegant on the silky-textured and stimulatingly salty palate. If you love Prüm, this is the wine you would probably want to die with. It has the perfect balance of finesse yet is still highly digestible. You'll fall in love with this, no doubts at all. Tasted in March 2019. -SR collapse

Luscious tangerine, pineapple and stone-fruit flavors are forward and fruity but nuanced by layers of smoky minerals and spine-tingling acidity. It's a bold little wine that's stunning already but will improve for decades ahead. collapse

As with quite a few of the Prüm 2017s, there is a welcome influx of brightly juicy fresh citrus – here suggesting both white and pink grapefruit – that renders the finish, for all of its richness, vibrant and downright refreshing. What’s more, there is a transparency to smoky, stony and saline nuances such as one seldom witnesses in a Riesling from fruit this ripe. And there isn’t one bit of superficial sweetness. (There is no Lange Goldkapsel Graacher Himmelreich Auslese this vintage – perhaps one reason why this Goldkapsel bottling is so sensational – but there is material that will eventually be released as Beerenauslese, or perhaps even as TBA.) -- David Schildknecht collapse

Displays terrific harmony, followed by an ethereal, marathon finish. Best from 2023 through 2043. 25 cases imported.–AZ collapse
