In the Gilbert & Gaillard Guide's 2010 release, Targé has been quoted four times:

Les Fresnettes 2007: 87/100
"Brilliant colour. Delicate, oaky, grilled nose, with notes of white fruit and vanilla. Powerful palate, amole, tight texture. If the oak is still very marked, it does not hide the very pure fruit flavour. A premium Saumur Blanc, still young."

Targé 2007: 87/100
"Deep youthful colour. Intense nose of ripe fruit, note of mineral. Concentrated palate with generous texture. Delicate tannins, fragrances very representative of Cabernet Franc. A nice Champigny."

Quintessence 2006: 90/100
"Deep colour.Rich, intense nose of red and black fruit (blackcurrant, gooseberry) against an oaky vanilla background. Ample, round palate with a velvety texture. A wine both powerful and elegant."

Coteaux de Targé 2007 : 92/100
"Golden luminous robe. Fine nose, with honey, acacia flowers and crystallized fruits. Mild mouth, full bodied, with a nice balance between freshness and sugar. Perfumes are expressive, delicates and complex. A model to respect."
