Rieslings of the… 2016 vintage are spectacularly good: fully ripe, lush, round and intense but rather moderate in alcohol and acidity… Prum’s 2016 Prädikatswein… are fascinating in their purity, lightness, finesse and stimulating mineral freshness. STEPHAN REINHARDT, The Wine Advocate

This vintage strikes me as an ideal one for showcasing the virtues of Prüm Kabinett – not that wines of higher Prädikat are unimpressive. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Vinous

With the rise of so many excellent winemakers in the region, one might have supposed that J.J. Prüm, with its profound conservatism, might have been overtaken and left behind. Not a bit of it. The Estate remains where it has been for decades: at the summit. STEPHEN BROOK, The Wines of Germany

As is always the case, for me, the release of the wines from JJ Prum is right up there with my favourite releases in any given year. Tasting through the range this year was an exercise in terroir expression. It is always the case with these wines but they shine brightly in 2016 and tasting the range of sites up the Pradikat levels side by side really highlights just how remarkably well Katarina manages to capture and bottle the essence of her various vineyards in the context of the season: she has done so with razor sharp clarity this year. Simply put this is as captivating and gorgeous a set of wines I have seen from what is perhaps my favourite white wine domaine on the planet.

For those who have been following our 2016 German Riesling campaign you will no doubt be aware that I lean towards 2016 over the much hyped 2015 vintage. Interestingly so do many of the producers. There is no question that both years produced a bevy of exceptional wines but the differences in style are quite stark. 2015, as a general rule, were hedonistic, ripe and had abundant fruit, they were simply stunning right out of the gate. The 2016s are a return to classic wines, in the best possible way, they have more buoyancy, tension, terroir and a real sense of precision. These traits are all present and clearly on show here with the 16 Prum wines.

This tasting will feature a selection of Prum 2016 rieslings across almost all the Pradikat levels with a small canape from the Bellota Kitchen to highligh just how incredible these wines are with food.
