A little German meal tonight, served with my daughter’s favorite wine producer, Joh. Jos. Prüm. So it was choucroute garní (sauerkraut with smoked pork loin, weisswurst and pork belly), potatoes and a 2007 Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese. Great meal and an even better wine! #johjosprüm#riesling
Visited the famous winery Joh. Jos. Prum..
20ha, only ungrafted riesling, VDP, 100% sweet, natural fermentation
many different profiles of wines, depends on the Pradikat and specially of the soil it come from. Blue slate, red slate or volcanic soil give different flavors.
Different terroir :
Wehlener Sonnenuhr – pure, weathered blue slate, quite stony.
Graacher Himmelreich – very deep soiled (great water maintenance), weathered blue devon slate but also shows pockets of blue slate.
Zeltinger Sonnenuhr – in the best parts similar to Wehlener Sonnenuhr.
Bernkasteler Badstube – weathered Devon slate, also parts with blue slate and traces of loam.
All the wine needs time before to develop complex aromas.. #somm#sommlife#wine#sommelier#degustation#tasting#winetrip#instawine#mosel#germany#johjosprüm#riesling#kabinett#spatlese#auslese#whitewine#bernkastel#whoelen#weingut#topwine
Thoughts on my wine experience in Trier Germany 🇩🇪. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸 Restaurant wines; 🍇 🍇 🍇🍇🍇🍇 -Ornellaia Le Volte 2015 from Italy 🇮🇹 at L’Osteria.Back to comfort food, a delicious pizza 🍕 in a cozy outdoor courtyard setting, great service and enjoyable with an Italian wine. The Le Volte 2015, dry, full bodied firm, dusty texture, rustic flavours of black cherries, roasted coffee beans, spices and good acidity. I would like to purchase this wine again when it finally arrives in the British Columbia market, great aging potential. Best in 2-4 years. Strongly recommended. 🍇🍇🍇🍇🍇🍇 -Joh. Jos Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese 2015 from Germany 🇩🇪 at Das Weinhaus. A restaurant and also a wine store where you can find German wines from almost 50 wineries. Has a wine lover, who wouldn’t want to eat in a restaurant where you are surrounded by thousands of German Rieslings 😋. Both of our main plate of fish where very good, great atmosphere and a superb wine. A Riesling, light as a feather with great flavours, very balanced between sugar and acidity. Beautiful in it’s youth, should turn out to be something really special with additional 5 to 10 years. I purchased a few bottles to bring home; need I say, the Riesling I just enjoyed tonight and Dr. Loosen Riesling Beerenauslese 2015. I will continue to seek out the 2015 wines, this was a superb vintage. 🍇🍇🍇🍇🍇🍇 -Van Volxem Alte Reben Riesling 2015 at Brasserie. A dry or Trocken Riesling tonight with a salty minerality, grapefruit and tree fruit flavours and crisp acidity that went beautifully with our food tonight. Another beautiful evening with great food and wine. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸 Trier is a beautiful, charming city like many along the Mosel wine route. The center of the city has a party atmosphere, with preparation underway for the upcoming, annual Oktoberfest celebration. Cheers my wine friends🍻. @van_volxem_estate @drloosenwines
Lovely summer evening at the Eiskeller bar with Zonk and meeting @drinkingparis
The JJP was actually from the Bar Chérie where we went later on.
Why can’t summers always be like this in Germany?
