96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes is more classic, with a fresh, vibrant, full-bodied style that carries seriously dense black and blue fruits, graphite, scorched earth, and peppery garrigue like aromas and flavors. Rich, powerful, and with plenty of structure, it’s going to need bottle age but is certainly a tremendous wine in the making. The blend is 45% each of Grenache and Mourvèdre, with 10% Syrah, that was vinified in stainless steel and aged in 55% new barrels and the balance in concrete tanks. (10/6/20)"

94 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "An almost aerial freshness on the nose with pure damson juice and velvety tannic finesse on the palate. The alcohol is somewhat raised however, warming your tongue on the finish. Apart from that, it's well balanced, with great textural wealth. Grown on galets roulés, fermented in stainless steel, aged half in new barriques, the other half in concrete. Drinking Window: 2022-2036. (Oct 2020)"
