Wine Spectator 91 points - Forward, fetauring flattering peach, almond and creamed yellow apple notes backed by a hint of heather. Juicy, lush and accessible now. Drink now through 2014. 500 cases imported.-JM

Vinous 89 points - (100% marsanne; 12.5% alcohol): Bright gold. Intense citrus pith and floral aromas, with notes of ginger and white flowers in the background. Shows good density as well as vivacity, offering tangy lemon and orange zest flavors and a touch of chalky minerality. Finishes with resonating spiciness and good length.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2011 Crozes-Hermitage Les Meysonnieres Blanc (100% Marsanne) is one of the finest examples I have tasted of this cuvee. It exhibits white peach, tangerine oil and wet stone notes as well as a steely, beautifully fruity, medium-bodied personality and more density and richness than usual. (Dec 2012)
