96 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "Very smart indeed - fresh, perfectly balanced and a great expression of Roussanne - it captures its power, shows its affinity with oak, displays its potential for quality and longevity. An extraordinary Roussanne, with great freshness and authenticity. 4,000 bottles made. North-facing Roussanne planted on clay limestone. Fermented and matured for 10 months in barriques, 50% new, 50% one-year-old. Drinking Window: 2020-2028. (Oct 2020)"

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A tiny production, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Fontaine Blanc is beautifully done and certainly ranks with the top wines of the vintage. Based on 100% Roussanne, it has a smoking bouquet of buttered citrus, caramelized white currants, toasted bread, and a touch of nuttiness to go with a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated style on the palate. With bright acidity, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish, this serious Roussanne can be enjoyed now or cellared for 10-15 years, if not longer. Drink: 2020-2035. (10/6/20)"
