From the Minivertical tasting hosted by Grossie and his wife on Saturday in honor of Pyangs visit to the Windy City.
1998- This wine was served a little too warm I thought and suffered because of it. The roundest of the 4 Prums but I thought it could have used a little more acidity. Notes of green apple and pear with a rich finish. 90.
1999- A floral nose. This one had some spritz to it and was a little sweeter and riper than the 1998 with better acidity levels. Balanced with melon and mineral notes. 92.
2000- My least favorite of the Prums. This had a musty nose which I attributed to the wetness of the 2000 vintage. The rain in 2000 promoted a lot of unfavorable rot. This wine tasted lean but had good acidity. Notes of cantalope and apple. 88.
2001- The clear cream of the crop in this group. A nose filled with mineral and slate nuances. Deep rich flavors of orchard fruit and wet stone. Based upon its price and quality it is worthy of being in WS's Top 10 of the wines of 2003 which is exactly where I predict it will end up come December. 95.
