The Prum 2006 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Beerenauslese is, as already noted, the first of its kind. Cherry jam and grapefruit marmalade, mango and peach preserves, as well as floral and herbal distillates are suggested by the intensely ester-rich aroma. White raisin mingles with the confectionary fruit elements on the palate, which on the one hand displays remarkable density and considerable sheer viscosity; but on the other hand is supremely elegant and buoyant, traits perfectly reflected in its wafting length. All the way through this collection, in fact, neither clarity nor delicacy has been significantly sacrificed as we climb from one degree of botrytization to another. Every element of these grapes, including their acidity, was obviously concentrated with the minimum imaginable disruption or blemish. (In addition, Beerenauslesen, and Trockenbeerenauslesen were bottled here from each of Graacher Himmelreich and WehlenerSonnenuhr in this vintage. I also did not have occasion to taste the Prum 2006 Auslese from the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr.) (DS)
(for 375 ml.) Golden yellow. Apricot preserves, mango and lemon custard float exuberantly over a bed of smoky botrytis on the nose. The unctuous peach fruit and honeyed texture rise above the wine's understated acidity. Very rich but still youthfully closed, this very long wine finishes with a highly refreshing spice character. Lay it down. (JBP)
Concentrated and pure, this boasts apricot, peach, lime sorbet and honey flavors wrapped in a velvety texture. Lush and elegant at the same time, with a mouthcoating presence and a long finish. Drink now through 2040. (BS)
