Wine Spectator 91 points - A fresh style, with pineapple, apple, peach and melon flavors bouncing along, backed by a light bitter almond thread that holds the finish. Fresh acidity should help this stretch out with brief cellaring. Drink now through 2015. 2,000 cases made.-JM  (Oct 15 2014)

Vinous 89 points - (all marsanne): Pale gold. High-pitched aromas of nectarine, pear skin, ginger and jasmine. Lively and precise on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, showing good lift to its pit fruit and melon flavors. Finishes spicy and bright, with energetic citrus fruit and honeysuckle qualities.  (Mar 2014)

Wine Advocate 87 points - Starting off the whites that are already in bottle, the 2012 Crozes-Hermitage La Petite Ruche Blanc is a serious value that shows classic Northern Rhone white characteristic and won’t break the bank. Offering up notions of citrus rind, honey blossom, flowers and citrus rind, this fresh, lively and mineral-tinged effort has medium-bodied richness and depth and will drink nicely for 2-3 years. (Dec 2013)
