Decanter: 97 / 100 Punkte
"Fennel and grapefruit on the nose. Only medium-bodied, with a lovely sense of freshness and tension. Great brightness, acidity and balance. Pure and precise, with great drinkability and length. Should be long-lived. Contains all six permitted Châteauneuf white grapes in equal measure, fermented in stainless steel, with malolactic blocked. Drinking window: 2023 - 2042 "
J. Livingstone-Learmonth: 4,5 / 6 Sterne
"Yellow robe; the nose is floral, shows rose petals, beeswax, dried fruits, light peach. It’s going to blossom well, with much variety. This is joli, graceful, comes with a lot of finesse; there is white tobacco in a tangy aftertaste. It will extend if left. The second half is a touch subdued, a bit low profile currently. Bottled Feb 2022. “It’s less Poire William this year, is more floral, and very mineral, saline; Bourboulenc and Picpoul feature in its depth – they give it minerality, even if the acidity is not there on paper,” Vincent Avril. From spring 2023, but it may be entering its closed phase now. 2042-44"

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."
