2001 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese

An initial burst of sulfur blew off with time, so open this bottle well in advance. This one is crisp, but it’s less laser beam and more massaging shower head. A touch of diesel joins the apple pie to add richness, and the long finish is dotted with Mosel minerality. Either open it and wait a few hours to drink, or wait a few years to drink and open it. I’d go with the latter. (E.D.)
