93-94 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Pale, glistening yellow. Meyer lemon, pear nectar and jasmine scents show excellent clarity and pick up hints of tarragon and candied ginger with air. Lively and expansive on the palate, offering intense citrus, orchard and pit fruit flavors and suave mineral and floral nuances. Shows fine delineation and spicy cut on the finish, which leaves honeysuckle and chamomile notes behind. (May 2020)"

93 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "Rich yellow in colour, slightly honeyed, very high in alcohol, very rich in body and puppy fat. There's a little honeysuckle on the nose. Low acidity, but it has an inner freshness. Fermented in fûts and old barriques, spends a year on the lees with no racking. Picked in two passages. Drinking Window: 2020-2025. (Oct 2020)"

93 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Produced using the domaine's usual blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne, the 2019 Saint Joseph les Oliviers Blanc is a bit richer and more honeyed than typical, marked by broad ripe flavors of pear, melon and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied and silky textured on the palate, it's balanced by a zesty, briny finish that provides delineation and lift to the ripe flavors. Drink: 2021-2030. (Jan 2022)"
