ALLOCATED JJ Prum 2017 Offering
Katharina Prüm started harvesting on September 25th in 2017, benefited from a golden sunny October and finished in a little bit more than three weeks on October 18. The team picked all predicates from the Graacher Himmelreich and Wehlener Sonnenuhr, and are both of the finest produced in the Mosel that year with a focus on Spätlese and Auslese, which are absolutely fabulous in their purity, finesse and weightless elegance.
There are no finer wines coming out of the Mosel than those of JJ Prum. During my visit just a few weeks ago, I can tell you first hand the care, hard work and dedication Prum puts into every bottle. Walking in the world-famous steep slopes of the Graacher and Wehlener vineyards just takes your breath away and it becomes immediately clear why these wines are so amazing.
Be quick, this is a VERY limited offer as there are only 150 cases of these wines that are even produced.
Place your order now, wines will arrive later this week.
2017 Joh Jos Prüm * Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett
$36.99btl or $199.75 per six pack ($33.29btl)
The 2017 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett offers a clear, bright, fresh and flinty bouquet with nice reduction. On the palate, the wine is light, lush, piquant, fresh and salty, with grip, tension and spring-like clarity and freshness. A gorgeous, highly stimulating Kabinett.
2017 Joh Jos Prüm * Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese
$49.99btl or $269.95 per six pack ($44.99btl)
The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is impressively deep, dense and expressive on the nose that is more mineral rather than fruity. On the palate, this is a lush, tensioned, very precise, elegant, sharply defined and complex Riesling. It’s not as exuberant as the Sonnenuhr can be, but it represents more of the gray/blue slate soil. The finish is really lush, perfectly concentrated and salty. This is a great Prüm icon Spätlese.
2017 Joh Jos Prüm * Graacher Himmelreich Auslese
$59.99btl or $330 per six pack (special price-$55btl)
The 2017 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese is coolish, bright and fresh on the still-reductive but attractive nose with its fine Riesling and slate aromas. The wine is salty-piquant and terribly fresh on the palate, with very fine Riesling and crispy-salty slate expressions. This Auslese is highly refined, crystalline and more intellectual compared to the Badstube, but hedonists would take it as well. Gorgeous!
