Wine Enthusiast, 93 points: The Sequana Winery has had enormous success with this vineyard over the years, and now MacPhail dips into it, with impressive results. The first impression is of acidity, mouthwatering and tangy. Then the flavors explode...
jamessuckling.com, 94 points: Aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries, mushrooms and spices. Full and very intense with lots of fruit. Firm and silky. Plenty of tension. Layered and intense. Love it now, but this will be better in 2020.
Wine Spectator, 94 points: Bright, with a distinctly racy edge, this Condrieu is marked by yellow apple, mirabelle plum, white peach and chamomile notes, along with hints of quinine and honeysuckle. The fresh finish eschews power for detail. ...

Wine Enthusiast, 96 points: Right from the early days of tasting in spring 2001 this was going to be one of the stars of the vintage. And a star it remains. There is big ripe fruit with solid ageworthy tannins. It may not be as powerful as some of...
Wine Spectator, 96 points: Finely detailed in texture, with an expressive flavor profile of
strawberry pâte de fruit, biscotti, ground anise and ginger,
matched to vivid acidity and a rich, minerally character. Broad and
