92 points "The 2004 Roussanne exhibits tremendous intensity and nuances as well as blockbuster aromatics and a full-bodied, flamboyant palate. 2004 is unquestionably a top-class vintage for John Alban."

90 points "The 2009 Roussanne comes across as quite rich and textured, with plenty of overt fruit, but less aromatic complexity and overall minerality. The vintage was the third in a series of drought years and the low - perhaps excessively low - yields are felt in the weight of the wine. (90-92)." Best 2012-2017

92 points "Bright yellow. Intense aromas of white peach, pineapple and lemon zest, with floral and ginger topnotes. Juicy and expansive on the palate, with vibrant acidity giving lift and focus to the rich pit fruit and pineapple flavors. Spicy notes linger impressively on the sappy, focused finish."
