93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Neither of the 2019 Cornas had been bottled at the time of my trip through the region. The 2019 Cornas Renaissance is well worth seeking out, and despite being the entry level Cornas for this family, it tastes like most estates’ top releases. Beautiful red and blue fruits, bouquet garni, iron, and peppery notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, pure, seamless Cornas that should benefit from just short-term cellaring and have 15 years or more of prime drinking. (2/16/22)"

92-94 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Intensely perfumed, mineral-driven dark fruit and violet scents, along with a smoky element and a hint of cured tobacco. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering lively cassis, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors and a hint of dark chocolate. Closes very long and spicy, with a repeating cherry note and steadily building tannins. (May 2020)"

92-94 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Even the 'early-drinking' 2019 Cornas Renaissance needs some time in the cellar. It's full-bodied, dense and tannic, with notes of horse liniment and cassis, plus savory undertones of black olive. Rich, velvety textured and long on the finish, it looks to be a solid effort. Drink: 2025-2040. (Jan 2022)"
