  • TASTING NOTE: “The reduction has already receded on the 2021 Riesling Bernkasteler Lay Spätlese, revealing ripe and sunny fruit that references golden Mirabelle tinged with fresh orange peel and a streak of lime. The sweetness still carries a touch of yeasty richness, a textural element grounding that shining fruit a little but lending the slightest note of welcome apple pip bitterness. A textural, aromatic Auslese, edged with brilliant acidity but a dispersed finish. Severely limited quantity, not widely available in most markets.” 92 Points - Anne Krebiehl MW, Vinous 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Bernkasteler Badstube is the southern-most of the vineyard sites that appear on a J.J. Prum label, bordering the southern edge of the Graacher Himmelreich site. The Bernkasteler Badstube slopes are on a marginally shallower gradient, with deeper soils than the Graacher and Wehlener, while the western orientation allows the vines longer exposure to the afternoon sun. The Badstube typically produces a wonderfully floral, delicate and mineral wine. Overall, the wines are usually slightly more delicate in structure and weight when compared with the wines of Graacher or Wehlener but they are wonderfully racy and fine examples of the middle Mosel. Bernkastler Lay is an 8ha single vineyard site, within the Badstube collection of vineyards, which faces west to southwest, and has an incredibly steep gradient of 50 percent and has deep soils composed of blue shale and slate. Spätlese is the German term for late harvest, with grapes being picked at their maximum ripeness but without being affected by noble rot.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The J.J. Prüm estate was founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm. The 13.5 hectare estate includes some 70% of ungrafted vines - because the phylloxera louse cannot survive in the slate soils of the Mosel.  Dr Manfred Prüm has led the estate since 1969, with his daughter Katharina now running the winery. Unique amongst producers in the Mosel for it's style and quality, it is the great sites, old vines, the lowest yields, very late harvesting and selection of only the best berries that distinguishes the wines of J.J Prüm. In the winery the winemaking is as natural as possible with as little intervention as possible. The wines typically need several years to start showing their best and can live and develop for decades.
