96 Pts David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule is proof that - 40 years after the Summer of Love - Flower Power is still a viable concept, at least chez Prum. Sweetly perfumed gardenia, decadent lily, bitter-sweet iris...all cavort in a matrix of apple and quince preserves, vanilla and lemon cream, honey and white raisin. And for all of its richness, sweetness is the last thing on your mind while this wine is on the table. I imagine you could simply inhale its entire, vast sensual contents, so ethereal is every aspect of it. And if that doesn't get you high, then youâre no Mosel wine lover!" -96 points - David Schildknecht - Wine Advocate
"Very concentrated, yet also very clean, refined and pure. Slate, honey and vanilla aromas and flavors prevail, with hints of peach and lime peeking through. It all culminates in a long, mercurial finish. Best from 2012 through 2040." -95 Points Wine Spectator
"One of the most remarkable things about the J.J. Prum wines is their ability to marry richness with lightness, and that's well displayed in this auslese. The aromas are funky-stinky at first, yet with aeration those scents merge with tropical fruit to become an indescribably complex, seamless whole. Extremely long on the finish, with echoes of passion fruit lingering for minutes afterward. Drink now-2040." -95 Points Wine Enthusiast
"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 - 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
