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)"
