Joh. Jos. Prüm, Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese Mosel 2002

JJ Prum Spatlese Graacher Himmerich 2002 #2Greenish-gold.  Complex, refined, crystalline nose with a mild (compartively for J.J. Prüm), egg-y reductive streak.  Some CO2 to keep things light.  Yellow peach, cox’s orange pippins, distilled almond, linden flower, blue slate.   An elegant ripple of verdant succulence and mintiness as it develops: balsam, wintergreen, melisse.  Focused minerality and an etched citrus rind acidity; this has aged beautifully and will continue to improve.  Solicitous floral-slate finish; an elegant, of-the-drier-side expression of Mosel.  Very pure, quite cool fruit with impressive class.  A thrilling Spätlese, one of character and dimension.  Now – 2020+.
