- Saint-Aubin 2009 - The Sunday Business Post - March 2013 - "Very elegant" A superb selection of grapes and a pampered upbringing which is now, in the 2009, reaching a lovely, toasted, butterscotch and hazelnut glory over a lean, nicely structured wash. Should evolve for another three or four years but a very elegant wine now. (Ireland)
- Saint-Aubin 2009 - My Wines And More - May 2013 - 85/100Pale lemon yellow. Apples, minerals, some citrus and ever so slightly floral nose. Fresh acidity, rounded, rich, little bit fat and could be fresher.
- 2002 Saint Aubin - La Revue des Vins de France - February 2006 - 3 stars :Pale robe. Expressive bouquet, small white fleshed fruits, linden hints, well balanced palate. Quite dense, very fruity with striking nervousness. Finale is well structured, faintly hardened by acidity, but it should make up for it at the table.
