From Stephen Brook’s ‘Wines of Germany’: “The wines whether a modest Kabinett or an opulent Beerenauslese, are the epitome of filigree elegance: light in body but intense in flavour, exquisitely balanced and precisely tuned, and capable of the most extra-ordinary longevity. With the rise of so many excellent wine makers 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 is has been for decades: at the summit.”
