95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Cornas Brise Cailloux is just brilliant stuff and quite possibly the finest vintage of this cuvée I’ve tasted. Loaded with notions of black raspberries, spring flowers, incense and bay leaf, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a light, graceful, elegant texture, sweet tannin, and a blockbuster finish. It's a ripe, sexy Cornas that stays graceful and balanced, and is already hard to resist. It will keep for two decades. Drink: 2018-2038. (1/24/18)"

94 points Wine Spectator: "[$60 list] Bright, with violet and white pepper notes leading into the core of crushed plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit. Racy acidity, a mouthwatering sanguine thread and a long, lingering mineral accent define the finish. A bit youthfully austere thanks to some pebbly tannins, so cellar to let the fruit fully absorb the structure. Best from 2020 through 2030. 1,500 cases made, 150 cases imported. (11/15/17)"
