93 Points - “This is 'the vision of Guigal in Nalys' according to Philippe Guigal. It has floral and citrus notes on the nose, primarily lily. Cashew notes from the oak are secondary to the fruits and flowers, discreet and well-integrated. The palate is rich, weighty and concentrated, with bright acidity running through it to a long finish. It has a drinkability thanks to its purity and clarity of flavour, but it also displays the intensity and regal texture of good white Châteauneuf-du-Pape. A blend of 43% Roussanne, 33% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 6% Bourboulenc and 3% Piquepoul. Drinking Window 2019 - 2025.” - Decanter
93 Points - “A solid first effort from the new ownership, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Grand Vin Blanc is a blend of 43% Roussanne, 33% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 6% Bourboulenc and 3% Picpoul. Seventy percent of the blend aged in oak, but I'd say that component is discrete, adding just a hint of pencil shavings and a fine-grained, silky texture. It's full-bodied and succulent, delivering an attractive combination of pineapple and saline notes with understated elegance.” - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
