Joh. Jos. Prüm dinner

Dinner at Zhejiang Heen.  Dr. Katharina Prüm introduced her wines.

2014 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett, from magnum - plenty of flint, polyurethane, almost a little floral and clearly jasmine.  Relatively high acidity but with some residual sugar.

2007 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese - leaner on the nose, with more pungent polyurethane.  Rounder on the palate with more sweetness.  Very lovely to drink now.

1987 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese - lots of polyurethane, a little more white pepper, more acetone, fragrant.  Much higher acidity on the palate than expected, with almost no noticeable sugar.  Good length on the palate.

1998 Joh. Jos. Prüm Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Auslese - much more fragrant and complex, more evolved, with acetone, a little minerals.  Pretty sweet but still good acidity on the finish.

1997 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese - more pungent and plastic, more flint, slate, white pepper.  Sharper on the nose.  Still nice and smooth on the palate.

1995 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese - very, very floral, with white flowers.  Later on the floral notes faded a little to make way for wax and acetone.

2003 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel - very floral, with lots of white flowers, a little bit of slate, and plenty of polyurethane.  Sweeter and richer on the palate, also more viscous.

2003 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel - lean on the nose, with flint, white pepper, white flowers.  Kinda sweet but drier than the Graacher Himmelreich, with sweetness coming on the back half of the palate.  Opened up more and showed more white flowers.  Good length here.

2006 Joh. Jos. Prüm Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Beerenauslese - tons of orange blossom and honey, with acetone and white flowers.  Sharper nose here, a little pollen, and the polyurethane really came out later.  Sooooo rich and unctuous, and of course sweet like nectar.  A beautiful wine.

Full post on dinner is here.
