The 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule is proof that 40 years after the Summer of Love "Flower Power" is still a viable concept, at least chez Prum. Sweetly perfumed gardenia, decadent lily, bitter-sweet iris ... all cavort in a matrix of apple and quince preserves, vanilla and lemon cream, honey and white raisin. And for all of its richness, sweetness is the last thing on your mind while this wine is on the table. I imagine you could simply inhale its entire, vast sensual contents, so ethereal is every aspect of it. And if that doesn’t get you high, then you’re no Mosel wine lover! (DS)
Rounder and richer than Prüm's white-capsuled Auslese, this infuses its floral citrus and stone fruit flavors with a soft yet insistent slatiness, feeling elegant, multifaceted and finely detailed. It's creamy in texture, backed by lively acidity that enlivens the aromas and elongates the finish, and as is typical for a Prüm wine, the balance is impeccable.
One of the most remarkable things about the J.J. Prüm wines is their ability to marry richness with lightness, and that's well displayed in this auslese. The aromas are funky-stinky at first, yet with aeration those scents merge with tropical fruit to become an indescribably complex, seamless whole. Extremely long on the finish, with echoes of passion fruit lingering for minutes afterward. Drink now-2040. *Cellar Selection* (JC)
Very concentrated, yet also very clean, refined and pure. Slate, honey and vanilla aromas and flavors prevail, with hints of peach and lime peeking through. It all culminates in a long, mercurial finish. Best from 2012 through 2040. (BS, Web Only-2009)
