This is really quite an intense Spätlese yet retains a feather light quality, such is the wonderful balance and vitality of the wine.

A vibrant and lovely combination of intensity, minerals and deftness.

Manfred is certainly one of the world's more eccentric wine producers and a tasting in his drawing room with him is always enjoyable and entertaining. In the Sonnenuhr of Wehlen he owns a portion of one of the Mittel Mosel's top vineyards. Its steep south-facing dark slate slopes tend to result in deeply flavoured, mineral yet rich and smoky wines. In addition, he manipulates some plots in the next door Himmelreich of Graacher which produces engaging wines with fresh acidities that are… Read more

James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2015)
A great spätlese that is really ripe, but still vibrant, elegant and subtle. Sensational interplay of all the components that make this a very classic example of this category. This has a personality all of its own (something floral that's unusual for this site). (6/2017)

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 94 Points (2015)
This was the first – among very few – wines in the 2015 Prüm lineup to lead with a bit of yeasty fermentative “Mosel stink,” but that veil soon parted more than sufficiently to showcase an alliance of ripe honeydew melon with cassis, grapefruit, and hints of cress and lemon peel that subsequently lend incisive, piquant invigoration on a delicate, polished, infectiously juicy palate. Penetrating and sharply focused, but without its efficacious and enlivening acids turning at all aggressive, the tinglingly, refreshingly citric yet soothing and cooling finish serves up a shimmering array of stony, smoky, alkaline and crystalline nuances. (DS) (9/2016)

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2015)
Prüm's 2015 Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese is clear, intense and flinty on the nose, very precise but well concentrated; however, it is the most reductive of the Spätlese quartet. Round and piquant, with a stimulating fruit and salinity, this is a very well-defined, crystalline and straight Spätlese of great finesse and elegance. It needs five years or so to unfold all its talents, but it can surely age for 20 or 30 years.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17.5 Points (2015)
Dense, concentrated fruit with still very sharp definition. Ultra-HD Riesling. What intensity! Plenty of sugar but the acid has it surrounded. 17.5/20 points (RH) (10/2022)

The Grand Vin Chardonnay displays a wonderful slightly straw colour. The nose displays vibrant citrus, lime zest, hints of apple with underlying minerality and vanilla butterscotch. The palate has a fantastic balance, minerality and fruit expression with richness coming through
