94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I continue to love the white from this great estate, and the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc does nothing to dampen my enthusiasm. Revealing a light gold hue as well as a rock star nose of dried pineapple, melon, white peach, honeysuckle, and a touch of spice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a beautiful texture, and a great, clean, classy finish. It will drink well today and can be cellared for over a decade. Drink: 2020-2030. (10/6/20)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$55 list] Ripe and forward style, with a mix of candied lemon peel, white peach and yellow apple flavors infused liberally with honeysuckle and acacia. Everything bounces along together through the lively finish. Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne and Bourboulenc. Drink now through 2023. 367 cases made, 100 cases imported. (2/28/21)"

91 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Ripe, rich and a bit soft in feel, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is roughly equal parts Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne. Pear, pineapple and melon notes all make themselves known on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is round and generous, finishing with notes of ripe citrus (tangerine). I've given it a relatively short drinking window so you can enjoy it while young and fresh, but if you like broad, truffle-y whites, you might want to hold it a few years longer. Drink: 2020-2022. (Oct 2020)"
