This vintage has not been rated yet; see 2020 tasting notes:

‘If you love the mouthwateringly smoky, ham-bone-and-flowers allure of Northern Rhone Syrah, then dig into a glassful of this 2020 wine and see it personified. The wine is neither plump nor texturally rich on the palate; what it does do, rather, is take that perfumed fresh fruit and run with it to hypnotic (and mouth-watering) effect. You’ll find brighter acidity here than in most Northern Rhone white wines, paradoxically, but that acidity is ripe, vivid and resonant: perfect structuring for a wine that is clearly best drunk and enjoyed as soon as possible.’ – Decanter World Wine Awards, 97/100 (Best in Show)

‘Beautiful! Polished and correct. Very pure, moderate oak. Bone-dry end. Savoury yet fresh and feathery. Already lovely. Jamet-ish. Not cheap but then St-Jo isn’t nowadays alas. (Chapoutier, Les Granits is £44 now.) So clean – mouthwash! 2022-2027’ – Jancis Robinson,, 17.5/20

Maxime is a good friend of Loïc Jamet, and his wines have an uncanny stylistic similarity to those of Jamet.
