Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Vinous:
"Limpid, glistening gold. Nectarine, pear and Meyer lemon take on a fennel nuance as the wine opens up. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of chalky minerality. Expands and deepens on the long, silky finish, leaving behind a subtle floral quality. " Josh Raynolds - (May 2020)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Baked apple, cardamom and smoke introduce this full-bodied, lusciously waxen white. It's a rippling, textural wine that finishes on an elegantly salty tang. Enjoy now–2023. Anna Lee C. Iijima" - (5/1/2020)

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Blanc has lots of Grenache Blanc as well as other permitted varieties. Notes of white flowers, citrus, and honeysuckle all emerge from this medium-bodied, vibrant white that has good acidity and a clean finish. As usual, it over-delivers." - Jeb Dunnuck (12/20/2018)

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Blanc includes a majority of Viognier (as usual), supported by 15% to 20% Roussanne and bit of other Rhône varieties. It's a bold mouthful of apricot, pineapple and citrus, with a slightly floral nose. Medium to full-bodied, it's plump and round in the mouth, followed by a fresh, slightly briny finish. Drink it over the next couple of years." - Joe Czerwinski (31st Oct 2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Apricot, nectarine and green plum notes hold sway here, with flashes of fennel and star fruit on the finish. Ripe and rounded, but stays fresh in feel. Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc. Drink now. 50,000 cases made, 15,000 cases imported." - JM

James Suckling:
"A very attractive, viognier-based (50%) blend that has fresh apricots, peaches and pears, in a bright, ripe style. Drink now." - (19 Jul, 2019)
