97pts James Suckling

Still very youthful on the nose, this is crammed with ripe peach, plus more delicate notes of pineapple and mangosteen. It’s a minor miracle that this kind of concentration can be packed into such a sleek, medium-bodied palate. What an amazing mouthfeel this has thanks to the seamless integration of slatey acidity and ripeness. Very long finish with spot-on balance. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.

Importer Notes

Peach, apricot and baked apple on the nose. Velvety on the palate with persistent notes of tropical fruit.

Try with Indian and Asian dishes as well as soft cheeses.

Vintage after vintage, the Prüm family reasserts itself as an undisputed top-three producer in all of Germany. There is simply nothing like the shimmering, crystalline terroir expressions that emerge from this revered estate. Once again, the wine gods smiled upon the Mosel, as the 2021 vintage is the latest in a string of superb growing seasons, making this a line-up of unequivocal must-have cellar gems. Up and down the range, the genius of winemaker Dr. Katharina Prüm brilliantly shines through. The vintage is being roundly heralded as a return to the utterly enchanting, classic Mosel style of yesteryear, in contrast to the recent excellent, albeit warm and dry, vintages of the past several years. As Mosel Fine Wines recently declared, "2021 is a completely unique vintage with some of the finest Mosel wines we have ever tasted! Readers should plunge upon the brilliant fruity-styled wines, which have the lightness of the finest vintages ever in the region." One feature of note in 2021 is the reduced yields in the upper tiers of the prädikat spectrum—from the Spätlese category on up, allocations will be highly limited, so anyone wishing to stockpile these incredibly nuanced, filigreed wines will want to act with urgency on these first-tranche releases.
