91-93+ points Jeb Dunnuck: "Ranking with the finest Cairannes in the vintage, the 2018 Cairanne Maximilien checks in as 50% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre, and 15% Syrah raised all in concrete. This medium to full-bodied, concentrated, sexy 2018 boasts a deep purple color as well as Provençal notes of ripe black cherries, melted licorice, and ground pepper. I love it. (9/26/19)"

91 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Hints of crushed stone mark the nose of the 2018 Cairanne Maximilien, a tank-matured blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. It seems a bit subdued compared to last year's tank sample, but it still features attractive shadings of thyme, bay leaf and ripe cherries, with a bit of anise on the finish. Medium to full-bodied, smooth and elegant on the palate, it finishes with gentle, dusty tannins. Drink: 2020-2025. (Nov 2020)"
