J. Livingstone-Learmonth: 5 / 6 Sterne
"Firm yellow robe; Candy, mulled peach-nectarine fruits on the nose, with aniseed prominent, pear also. It’s open and full of running, a great sensaround whirl it gives. The palate has iodine threads, is also on aniseed, delivers good, chewy matter towards the finish. The Bourboulenc and Picpoul role here is important in freshening it. Grenache blanc was down from 16% to only 8% this year due to the coulure. This is STGT Châteauneuf blanc, gives a real sense of place. There are dried fruits, nuttiness in the flavour, with good late spring of life, freshness, likeable late crunch, essence of fruits, infused tea, camomile. This has character, really gives a picture du sud. 2041-43."
Decanter: 96 / 100 Punkte
"From various plots around the appellation, farmed organically. All six white varieties were co-fermented in equal percentages. There's a distinct quince, pear and aniseed character on the nose, while in the mouth it's very full-bodied, with piercing acidity and some fine tannin on the finish. Quite a full and broad style - it's fresh, but not all that lively. You must keep this, and not drink it young."
Vinous: 94-95 / 100 Punkte
"Vivid straw-yellow. Highly perfumed citrus and orchard fruit and floral qualities on the mineral-accented nose. Shows excellent concentration as well as vivacity, offering palate-staining pear, Meyer lemon and brioche flavors that stretch out steadily with air. The floral and mineral elements return emphatically on the intense, sharply focused finish, which lingers with serious persistence."

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."
