93 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The charming 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Clos du Belvedere is all Grenache Blanc, barrel-fermented and matured for eight months in used oak. The aromas are tight and citrusy, ranging from lime to pineapple, but on the palate the wine is honeyed, full-bodied and rich, with a long, briny finish. It should drink well for at least a couple of years. Drink: 2017-2020. (Oct 2017)"
93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$81 list] Made from 100% Grenache Blanc, the special cuvée 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Clos du Belvédère is more fresh and lively, with vibrant citrus, lime and salty minerality flowing to a medium-bodied, fresh, beautifully pure white that has high acidity, solid mid-palate density, and a clean finish. It's going to be even better this time next year. (10/19/17)"
93 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Pale gold. Heady orchard and pit fruit scents are lifted and sharpened by suggestions of chalky minerals, honeysuckle and lemon pith. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering intense nectarine, pear and Meyer lemon flavors and subtle hints of honey and brioche. Picks up a smoky nuance with air and finishes impressively long and seamless, with resonating stoniness and excellent clarity. Drink: 2022-2028. (Oct 2018)"
