95 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Pegau's 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvée Réservée is almost Burgundian in character, the way it balances upfront generosity with mouthwatering length. The flavors are different, offering hints of crushed stone, underripe pineapple, white peach and dried spices, then this medium to full-bodied wine adds vaguely chalky textural elements on the long finish. Silky and streamlined, it does a wonderful job of preserving freshness throughout. (Sep 2020)"

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Looking at the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée Blanc from Laurence Feraud, it offers a very racy, more mineral-laced style that carries ample tart citrus, sappy green herbs, and crushed stone-like notes to go with a medium-bodied, vibrant, racy yet still beautifully concentrated style on the palate. Almost with a little Alsatian Riesling-like minerality and just a hint of petrol, it has bright acidity, and a saltiness on the finish (as well as serious length). A beautiful white, it will actually benefit from a year in bottle, and I suspect it will be very long-lived. I wouldn’t put 15 years of prime drinking past it. Drink: 2020-2035. (10/6/20)"
