Joh Jos Prum Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett 2021
Region: Mosel Grapes: Riesling First Glance: Delicate yet Powerful, White Florals, Lime, Mineral Driven Acclaim: 94pts
The Wine: Hailing from the coolest vineyard on the Prüm estate, the 2021 Bernkasteler Kabinett opens with playful lime, white florals, orange blossom and a slatey minerality. Lucious and ripe, it is mouth filling and delicate at once, with a shaley texture and enveloping flavour. Focused and linear acid drives the long finish with a strong impression of purity and precision.
The Review: Anne Krebiehl MW, Vinous - 94pts “The nose of the 2021 Riesling Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett still has a touch of reduction, but underneath, an immense, bright, fruity juiciness reminiscent of Cox Orange Pippin apple and green Conference pear appears. More air brings almost a hint of elderflower. The palate is beautifully light with exquisite, dancing, light-footed balance. A textbook Kabinett - tender and playful with immense elegance and delicacy, luminous with vivid lemon acidity, tinged with traces of lime.”
