5 stars "Color: bright; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: floral; Acidity: crisp; Sweetness: medium dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: persistent; Overall: bold; A faulty cork, which I did not expect from Prum; but the wine was perfect. Appetizing nose. Crisp, lemon and honeysuckle, beautifully balanced together. Only 8.5% but powerful in flavour and long in finish. Absolutely delicious!"

91 points "The 2005 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese – like the other Prum wines I tasted, finished but not yet bottled – while undeniably rich, retains remarkably bright, fresh, crisp fruit and citrus acidity as well as pleasantly tart and chewy citrus zest and berry skin notes, nicely offsetting the sweetness and lending an invigorating drinkability that one does not always associate with the wines of this estate in their extreme youth. Deep suggestions of toasted walnut, cherry pit, and wet stone inform the silken-textured palate of this ravishing juicy, bell-clear Riesling. The nose of cherry, citrus, and spice is very slightly muted by fermentative aromas but the rest of this wine represents unrestrained satisfaction that one could begin deriving surprisingly early or defer for several decades."
