98 points Bettane & Desseauve Guide: "Perhaps the best Nalys in history, with this unparalleled definition, precision and harmony. Breeding is without common measure. A definition of the great white Châteauneuf, capable of crossing several decades. Spectacular. (2022)"

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship white is the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc, which is always a richer, more concentrated wine compared to the more mineral-laced Saintes Pierres. Offering full-bodied aromas and flavors of caramelized peach, honeysuckle, toasted brioche, crushed stone, and subtle nuttiness, it's wonderfully textured, medium to full-bodied, has integrated acidity, and a great finish. I'd certainly put this up with the top wines in the appellation. It's drinking brilliantly today yet it's going to keep for 15 years in cold cellars. Drink: 2021-2036. (3/5/21)"

94 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "Gentle apple compote aroma. This is an elegant, fresh style. Intense freshness, straight in style, not too full-bodied - great precision and clean lines. There's a tightening on the finish that helps create balance and focus. Highly spiced oaky finish. The oak will take time to integrate, but this will be extremely good when it's ready. 43% Roussanne, 33% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 6% Bourboulenc and 3% Piquepoul. 70% is vinified in barriques and demi-muids where it stays for seven months. Drinking Window: 2022-2030. (Jun 2021)"
