92 points La Revue du Vin de France: "Les Argiles, with its unforgettable freshness, exudes an irresistible, uncluttered sweetness that will be delivered within five or six years. (2024)"

90 points Rebecca Gibb, MW (Vinous): "As always, the 2020 Les Argiles is a Vouvray in all but the eyes of the French bureaucrats - the grapes are made into wine across the river from Vouvray and no longer qualify for appellation status. It's a supple style from a clay-rich parcel with a deep straw hue. It offers up succulent, smooth texture and ripe, generous, fragrant fruit. Acid and phenolics create its acid create its frame, holding it all in place and providing shape and structure. This is already drinking well. I suggested a drinking window to 2035 last year when I tasted pre-release, but now it might be better to bring that forward. Drink: 2023-2031. (Oct 2023)"

Producer notes: "Notes of honey, citrus, pear and apple are present in the nose with just a hint of caramel. Full-bodied in the mouth, but fresh with lively acidity."
