92/100 – James Suckling
90/100 – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2022 vintage)

“Youthful nose of lemon blossoms, white peaches and Asian pears. Very elegant and vivacious for a white Rhone. Medium-bodied and polished palate, with a lovely saltiness at the finish that makes it feel crisper than the wine really is. A cuvee based on viognier and marsanne with clairette and grenache blanc. Vinified completely in stainless steel.” – James Suckling

Tasting Notes: A nose of citrus and apricot mixed with white flowers. A round and welcoming palate with a fresh and vibrant finish.
