Jeb Dunnuck (94 points):
"Always a brilliant wine, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is the normal blend of all the permitted varieties, brought up in tank with malolactic fermentation blocked. This beauty offers classic apple blossom, crushed rock-like minerality, and ample citrus in a clean, crisp, yet also concentrated package. It will be better with short-term cellaring yet keep for two decades."

Wine Spectator (94 points):
"Creamed pear, melon and green fig notes form the core, with a frame of honeysuckle and heather adding range. Plump overall, but a verbena streak adds freshness for balance through the gently toasted finish. This has lots of range and is sneaky long. Drink now through 2027."

Galloni (94-95 points):
"Vivid straw-yellow. Highly perfumed citrus and orchard fruit and floral qualities on the mineral-accented nose. Shows excellent concentration as well as vivacity, offering palate-staining pear, Meyer lemon and brioche flavors that stretch out steadily with air. The floral and mineral elements return emphatically on the intense, sharply focused finish, which lingers with serious persistence."
