94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Plenty of quince, crushed stone, and white flower notes emerge from the 2018 Hermitage Blanc, a rich, medium to full-bodied white Hermitage. It has a kiss of toasty, nutty notes, but otherwise has completely absorbed its time spent in barrel. Beautifully done, this textured, layered white is going to evolve for two decades or more. Drink: 2020-2042. (11/19/20)"

94 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "Extremely full-bodied, possessing touches of dried pear, almond and an inner sweetness to the fruit. Delicious salinity and pleasing acidity, it does finish quite robust and oaky, but it's not overly powerful and works well. 18 to 24 months in second-fill barrel. Drink: 2021-2029. (Oct 2020)"

92 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Full-bodied and expansive on the palate, Guigal's 2018 Hermitage Blanc exhibits scents of toasted marshmallow, grilled pear, candied citrus and fennel fronds. Round and mouthfilling, it may be drunk now with considerable pleasure for its weight and sheer lusciousness, but lovers of aged Rhône whites will want to set aside a bottle or two for 10 years or so. Drink: 2021-2035. (May 2021)"
