96 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "Blackberry, star anise and juniper. Only medium-bodied for a Châteauneuf, but this has plenty of impact and intensity. Lovely bright acid line and sense of freshness from start to finish. Silky and voluptuous. 95% Grenache; 5% Mourvèdre, Vaccarèse and Cinsault. Grown on sand in lieu-dit Les Bédines, destemmed, fermented in concrete, then matured mostly in foudre except for 25% in demi-muid. Drinking Window: 2021-2028. (Oct 2020)"

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape, all of which were tasted from barrel, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Safres should equal or surpass the 2018 as it has the same level of elegance and finesse, yet even better mid-palate depth and concentration. It’s beautifully done and well worth purchasing. (10/6/20)"

92-94 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres is impressively rich and ripe, delivering velvety layers of black cherries and blueberries, combined with hints of dried spices and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, expansive in the mouth and long on the finish, it looks to be an excellent example of Les Safres, which is 95% Grenache from Les Bedines. Drink: 2021-2030. (Sep 2020)"
