JJ Prüm Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett 2007

JJ Prum is one of Mosel’s leading wineries and there’s a little bit of anticipation in opening one of this producer’s bottles.  This particular wine was sourced at auction, and presented as quite developed.  A yellow gold in colour, it opens to aromas that remind of lemon and has a lactic overlay.  The palate is off dry, fresh and retains a youthful spritz typical of Kabinett.  It has great length and quite developed characters of clarified butter.  Seek out well stored examples, but even this more developed version remains a very enjoyable wine. (Alc: 9.5%, Region: Mosel, Germany, Rating: Good to Very Good, Drink: now to 2022, Price: >$50, Tasted: October, 2017)
