94 points Chris Kissack (Winedoctor): "This was not the most generous vintage for this appellation, nevertheless Philippe and Vincent Foreau turned out sec, demi-sec and moelleux cuvées. This is the first of the trio, with 5 g/l residual sugar. The last time I tasted it was in Philippe’s cellars, so it is good to retaste it. It has a just beautiful nose, laden with honeyed apple and salted pear, dressed with a touch of scented acacia and honeysuckle. This is followed by such a seductive palate, dry as it should be of course, but unexpectedly sinewy, silky even, within which there lies a surprising toast-and-butter richness, covered with slices of with grilled apple and pear. It isn’t all scented seduction though, as there is also a delicious flourish of reductive energy, a little like I also saw in the 2016 vintage early on. Silky, with length and energy, and a persistent finish, this is great dry Vouvray. The declared alcohol is 13%. (Jul 2021)"
93 points (16.5/20) La Revue du Vin de France: "The potential of each of the cuvées is immense but it will be necessary to be patient because, at this stage, they remain timid. From the outset, the 2017 Sec develops a texture of great delicacy animated by a swirling bouquet of spicy and saline notes. (2020)"
