91+ points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The pure, elegant and clean 2017 Arbois Savagnin Ouillé is a more powerful vintage with concentration through low yields, but it still a straight and vertical white, with an unusual combination of power and elegance. There is a pleasant bitterness on the finish that somewhat offsets the ripeness of the year and makes the wine come through as nicely balanced... Drink: 2019-2023. (Jun 2019)"

91 points Wine & Spirits: "François Duvivier makes this wine at the 34.6-acre estate he and Guillaume d’Angerville have assembled in Arbois, which includes the ten acres they took over from Jacques Puffeney after his retirement in 2014. This wine comes from two parcels planted on Jurassic marl mixed with tiny fossilized oyster shells. Duvivier ferments it in large barrels and then ages it in neutral 350-liter barrels for ten months, creating a savory savagnin with cider-apple notes and white-chalk tension. This needs several years to fully develop in bottle. (Oct 2019)"
