JJ Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule 2007, 375mL (WA94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

JJ Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule

375mL

Vintage: 2007
Region: Germany

WA94
Rated 94 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The Prum 2007 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule smells so intensely of pink grapefruit, mint, and cassis that - I pray the Prums will forgive this inevitable if sacrilegious comparison! - I imagine Scheurebe. Honey and caramel on the creamy, delicate palate offer counterpoint with the wine`s luscious citrus and cooling, invigorating herbal notes. In conclusion, this practically explodes with a shower of citrus, herbal essences, salt, and crushed stone.` -- David Schildknecht in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `The characteristics of great Riesling from the Prum estate coincide with one of the most striking virtues of 2007 Mosel Rieslings in general, namely the ability to combine intensity of aroma and flavor with delicacy, and caressing richness with vivacity. In a sense, the best wines in this year`s collection are like Prum-squared in their distinctiveness and expressivity. Manfred Prum acknowledges good reasons for the widespread comparison of 2007 with 2004, and thinks the present vintage also shares the richness of 2005. Notoriously little attention is paid at this address to dry-tasting wines, and I was unfortunately not able to taste either a Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spatlese trocken or a Bernkasteler Badstube Spatlese feinherb. Nobly sweet wines which I have not yet tasted include Wehlener Sonnenuhr auction Spatlese, gold capsule Auslese, and Beerenauslese; a Graacher Himmelreich long gold capsule Auslese, and a Bernkasteler Badstube Eiswein.`
