92 points James Suckling: "This has super attractive, sweetly fragrant aromas of white flowers, apples and melon, leading to a palate that offers a very smoothly honed array of baked-pear and poached-apple flavors. Drink now. (10/11/19)"
90 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "A barrel-aged blend of 85% Clairette (the rose version) and 15% Grenache Blanc, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve Blanc is a bit brassy in hue, but still looks to have another year or two of primetime drinking ahead of it. Medium to full-bodied, with a bit of oily richness and a silky feel on the palate, it offers hints of honeyed stone fruit, pineapple and lime, backed by just enough pithy bitterness and crushed stone notes to keep it lively. Drink: 2019-2021. (Sep 2020)"
