Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Unripe stone fruit, unripe tropical fruit, fresh pressed white and yellow flowers, raw almond, grated nutmeg, citrus blossom and quince paste blend together seamlessly in this 2016 Rhone white. Lovely juice. Food pairings endless. Try with roast chicken with preserved lemon. 90 Points.
Rebecca Meir-Liebman rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A creamy textured wine, with medium acidity that refreshes and balances its full-bodied nature. On the palate, peach and apricot notes with some spice, while its body and texture allow successful pairing with heavier dishes such as: roasted Cornish hen or a rich pasta with cream sauce. It’s straight forward, but will shine with a food pairing that coaxes out its richness and complexity. Good value for money.
Brittany Gregory reviewed this wine as follows:

A balanced French white blend. Very aromatic with floral and citrus notes. Full of stone fruit (crisp peach, apricot) flavours with hints of citrus. An elegant and medium bodied dry white wine. A great summer white, perfect for sipping on its own or enjoying with pad Thai or summer salads.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
