92 points James Suckling: "This is really delicious with sliced lemons and pears and hints of stone and cement. Full-bodied, fresh and vivid with a medium-creamy texture and purity and focus. Second wine of Château Valandraud white. Drink or hold. (1/10/20)"
91 points Wine Spectator: "Warm ganache, crushed plum and cherry compote flavors form a fleshy, forward mix, backed by an encore of ganache on the finish. A crowd-pleaser, with enough fresh acidity to stay honest. Drink now through 2024. 417 cases made. (2018)"
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This fresh, fruity wine has balanced wood and fresh apple flavors. Acidity balances the ripe fruits, along with toastiness and a bright aftertaste. Drink from 2021 Alcohol 13%. (Mar 2020)"
