90 points The Wine Advocate
91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar"Light gold, with a faint onion skin cast. Spicy orange zest and honeydew on the fragrant, mineral-accented nose. Dry and tightly focused, offering lively Meyer lemon and melon flavors and a deeper suggestion of nectarine. Finishes with building floral character and excellent tangy persistence, leaving bitter citrus zest and dusty mineral notes behind."
94 points Wine & Spirits"The Paillards blend this wine from Chardonnay (70 percent) and Pinot Noir (30 percent); the color comes from Bouzy rouge (six percent of the overall blend) from 45-year-old vines. That also lends the wine an essence of red fruit, gentle scents of raspberries and strawberries that last. As succulent, creamy and cushioned as this wine may be, it has clarity and drive."
