S. A. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Trockenbeerenauslese – 2005 – 9.8 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

 

 

9.8Prum TBA

This is the first wine I have ever rated at 9.8 (98) and I have been and will always be conservative in how I view and rate wine.

This is a wine with considerable finesse, dense and yet nuanced, a finely sculpted wine that can be served at dessert as dessert.

Though I would recommend cheese–a blue cheese would be optimum in my opinion but if there is no blue cheese then your favourite cheese.  There are very few bottles of TBA that exist anywhere at any given time.  And it is a treasure to partake in these rare moments.  I have been fortunate to taste several.

This wine presents with a dark gold treasure chest hue; a successful Trockenbeerenauslese is a myriad of notes but the taste experience that is satisfying one sip at a time–nothing else is missing–nothing else is needed.  Notes of truffled wild flower honey, fleshy winter pear, Spitzenberg apple, autumnal baking spice, honeysuckle and the ever and almost non-detectable note of Calla Lily.

 ¡Salud!

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
