91-94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "The Magniens have 11 rows of 70 year old vines. Black purple in colour, the nose shows a medium ripeness yet with dark fruit. Slightly less ripe tannins on the palate but very well integrated. This wine is not so voluptuous but very fine. It has the best acidity of the range, by analysis. Tasted: November 2019."

91-93 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Aromas of raspberries, cherries and peonies preface the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques, a medium to full-bodied wine with good depth and concentration, its perfumed core of fruit framed by powdery tannins. Rather than emphasizing the more brooding side of this climat, it's a Lavaux St Jacques that—like all of Magnien's wines—emphasizes suppleness and purity of fruit. (Feb 2020)"

90-93 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .26 ha holding). There is again plenty of menthol influence to the very ripe yet fresh black berry aromas that are laced with hints of spice, anise and humus. While the mid-palate of the larger-scaled medium-bodied flavors is seductive and rich, the very firm, youthfully austere and stony finish is decidedly firm and built-to-age. Drink: 2030+. (Jan 2020)"
