91-93 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Tasted from foudre, the 2020 Bandol Cuvee Classique had been blended the week before my visit. Already showing classic notes of tree bark and truffle layered against cherries and raspberries and a touch of olive, it looks relatively precocious. In the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied, concentrated and rich, with a long, plush finish. Drink: 2023-2035. (Jan 2023)"

92 points La Revue du Vin de France: "The reds are to be discovered in 2020, a sunny vintage admirably tamed with freshness. The Tradition takes off with tenderness and a certain unctuosity of expression; an already seductive wine that will be good to drink within ten years. (2023)"

Producer notes: "In 2020 Mrs Lucie Peyraud, better known as Lulu, passed away soon after the harvest, at the age of 103. She joined her husband Lucien in ‘Winemakers’ Paradise.’ To express our gratitude to these renowned persons of the domain (and the region), the family has decided to rename our basic «Classic» cuvée: 'Lulu & Lucien' upon release of the 2020 red wines. This name will no doubt live on in the years to come. We wish you a pleasant discovery of this new label, an energetic and consistent wine that resembles its namesakes. Long live the memory of Lulu and Lucien!"
