94-96 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "From minuscule, hail-reduced yields of only nine hectoliters per hectare, the 2016 Hermitage Blanc Les Rocoules is a terrific effort, marrying honeyed richness with briny intensity. It’s a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne. Drink: 2018-2040. (Dec 2017)"

18/20 points Jancis Robinson: "90% Marsanne, 10% Roussanne. Yield 11 hl/ha. Creamy, tender texture. Apricot, yellow plum, long and smoky. Lacks the extra caramel notes of their straight Hermitage but is still gorgeous and layered. Prolonged finish. Drink between 2019-2036." (RH)
