96 points "96 points Wine & Spirits: "This is archetypal Prüm Auslese, from its aristocratic poise and silky finesse to its vibrant energy and crystalline complexity. Its sleek fuselage of fruit feels succulent without needing to be overly rich, and its subtle, mineral-drenched flavors unfold in kaleidoscopic detail on the long and fragrant finish. At the same time, its youthfulnes is almost painfully evident, a reminder that drinking this wine in optimum maturity is a pleasure that won't be experienced for at least another two or three decades." (10/09) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Pungent aromas of slate and flowers give way to peach and lime in this unevolved Riesling. The texture is supersilky, with great harmony among all the elements. Terrific length. Needs time." (04/09) 94 points and a Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Cellar Selection of 2009: "Some typical Prum smelly notes are apparent on the nose, but there's also plenty of pineapple and pear scents, and the flavor really blossom on hte palate; honeyed pineapple, melon and slate-like notes are sweet but balanced by tongue-tickeling acids. Long on the finish, where it picks up additional mineral overtones. Should come into its own by 2016 and last 20-30 years thereafter." (03/09) Citrus and slate in the aromatics. On the palate there is pear with peach, a hint of honey, and fresh cut apple. So fine and focused, clean and bright enchanting bottle of Riesling. Surely one of the lightest and most tactful Auslesen made in 2007. "
