Falstaff: 94 / 100 Punkte
"Helles Grüngelb, Silberreflexe. Zart nach Grapefruizesten und Quitten, feine Tropenfruchtanklänge, Blütenhonig und Mandarinenzesten. Saftig, elegant, feiner Säurebogen, mineralisch unterlegte gelbe Frucht, feiner Mango im Abgang, gute Länge, ein facettenreicher Begleiter bei Tisch."
J. Livingstone-Learmonth: 5 / 6 Sterne (Leading 2019 Chateauneuf-du-Pape white)
"Fine yellow robe, a near flinty tone. The bouquet is apart from many, has a dried fruits, cautious nature, shapes a little like a red wine. There is a nutty backdrop, a hint of greengage plum, quince, too. It needs study to winkle out its intricacies. The palate is also close-knit, destined for a fruitful longevity, is a wine of structure with a firm second half, reflecting the sunny lands of the vintage. It doesn’t give itself easily, so patience is very much required. There are pockets of fine white fruit along the palate, dried fruits, with intensity towards the finish. This is a complex, slow to evolve STGT Châteauneuf blanc, takes a classic route. From 2025. 2044-46."

"The medium to full-bodied 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc boasts impressive concentration and richness, allied to terrific freshness and length. As I was tasting it, I kept shaking my head marveling at how this blend of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Picpoul and Roussanne achieved such a wonderful sense of balance. Hints of anise no doubt play a prominent role in achieving this, enlivening the melon and pear that form the wine's core, to be elegantly replaced on the finish by lingering notes of ripe citrus. Certainly this is one of the most impressive whites I can recall tasting from this benchmark estate."
Decanter: 96 / 100 Punkte
"Low acidity, a little on the heavy side with pear, tarragon, quince, anise and touches of grapefruit and lemon verbena on the finish. Good length and already quite complex, but a little sprawling. Contains roughly equal parts of the six permitted white grapes. Various plots around the appellation, farmed organically, all varieties co-fermented in stainless steel."
J. Dunnuck: 94 / 100 Punkte
"Looking first at the white, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc from the talented Vincent Avril sports a light gold color to go with a beautifully complex, classic bouquet of lemon curd, exotic flowers, sappy green herbs, and crushed stone-like, salty minerality. These all carry to a medium to full-bodied white that has beautiful depth of fruit on the mid-palate of bright spine of acidity, and a fabulous finish. This cuvée has a long track record of aging gracefully and it can be drunk with considerable pleasure today or cellar for 10 to 15 years if you’re so inclined."

Zitat J. Livingstone-Learmonth: "Gold standard estate, joy to taste only one red, one white, so good blending is crucial. The yields are always very low – not much more than 20 hl/ha, which serves to concentrate the red wine, and there is an above average emphasis on the Mourvèdre, all planted in clay soils. The blend is now usually 55% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 5% various including white grapes, having been 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 5% various including white grapes into the early 2010s. The 2014 red was utterly charming, a real en finesse ****(*) beauty, while the 2015 is logically a bolder, more demanding ***** wine, requiring patience. The ***** 2016 red is deep and long, a vintage that will age extremely well. The whites drink well in their first couple of years, then back off, close down, and emerge as more complex, stimulating wines around seven years' old; they live well and deserve a top table accompaniment."
