91 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "Fragrant style of Syrah, with violets and liquorice, a touch of acetone and blueberry. Thirst-quenching, with good acidity, there's plenty of space in the wine, while the finish is dry and refreshing. Drinking Window: 2022-2025. (Oct 2021)"

90 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Bottled just a few days before my visit to the domaine, the 2020 Vin de France Le Vin des Amis was boasting a beautifully aromatic nose, redolent of peppermint, violets and cherries. Medium-bodied, fresh and silky in texture, it's easy and fun to drink. It's all whole-bunch Syrah from a 1.5-hectare vineyard on the flats between the village of Cornas and the river. It is made and aged in concrete. Drink: 2021-2025. (Jan 2022)"

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2020 Vin De Pays Le Vin Des Amis, which has just been bottled, offers some classic Clape character in a more up-front, mouth-filling, charming style. Blueberries, blackberries, peppered meat, and violets all define this utterly delicious Syrah geared for drinking over the coming 4-5 years. Drink: 2022-2027. (2/16/22)"
