95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Safres Blanc is a blend of Grenache, Roussanne, and Clairette brought up in older oak. Caramelized peach, white flowers spice, and honeyed notes all emerge from the glass Layered, with an attractive core of fruit, impeccable balance, and beautiful purity, it's a gorgeous white and one of the top efforts in the vintage. Drink: 2019-2031. (8/16/19)"

93 points James Suckling: "Impressive concentration and complexity here, this has attractive poached peaches and peach custard with a light, brulee-crust edge. The palate has such rich peaches and almost sorbet-like lightness and freshness on offer. Drink now. (10/11/19)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "[$88 list] VFresh and forward, with white peach, lemon curd, yellow apple and fennel notes melded together, backed by a hint of brioche on the rounded finish. Drink now through 2021. 215 cases made, 7 cases imported. (11/15/19)"
