90 Pts Wine Spectator
"A hint of reduction and some carbonic gas make this white awkward now, but it's light and focused, with delicate floral, peach and lime flavors, all backed by slate. Mouthwatering finish. Best from 2012 through 2022. 1,500 cases made." 90 Points - Wine Spectator
The Wine Advocate also scored this wine 88 Points.
"The J.J. PrÃ¼m wines have a reputation for being very long-lived and Dr. PrÃ¼m suggests that even his Kabinett wines ideally be cellared for five years or more, SpÃ¤tlesen and Auslesen of course longer. 20-years-old J.J.PrÃ¼m Kabinetts and SpÃ¤tlesen are still vivid, and Auslesen remain fascinating for decades, not even to speak about Beerenauslesen (BA), Trockenbeerenauslesen (TBA) and Eisweine."
"However, Dr. PrÃ¼m acknowledges that also a very young Kabinett, SpÃ¤tlese or Auslese can be extremely attractive â no complaint at all if such wines are savored with indulgence in their very youth already!"
"Unlike his father, who preferred to drink Auslesen and Beerenauslesen mostly, Manfred is fascinated by the whole spectrum of PrÃ¤dikate and enjoys it best to celebrate the progression, possibly with a few wine enthusiasts, starting with delicate, racy Kabinetts, continuing with slightly richer SpÃ¤tlesen and then even fuller-bodied, yet elegant Auslesen, and â in the best case - finally climaxing in an aged BA, TBA or Eiswein."
"The 55 acre estate consists of about 90% ungrafted, old vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Bernkasteler Lay and Bernkasteler Badstube. Plantings of the estate are 100 % Riesling and on steeply sloping Devon schist soil." -Importer
