Saumur Brut Blanc du Château de Targé 2008
Light gold colour. Creamy nose with white fruits and cave's aromas. Supple and light mouth with fine and thin bubbles. The creamy touch is back on the finale. A Saumur Brut that will be good for desert. 84/100

Saumur Blanc Dry, fermented and aged in oak barrels Les Fresnettes 2008
Bright and frank coulour. Delicate oaky nose (vanilla, pine), with white fruits notes after a few minutes. Rich mouth, still dominated by the ageing aromas. A qualitative structure associated with intense perfumes. A Chenin worth keeping. 89/100

Saumur-Champigny traditionnel, Targé 2009
Nice dark purple coulour. Very tipical cabernet nose (earth, pepper, ripe red fruits). Supple, balanced, with silky tannins. The rich aromas are well emphasized: a classic for the Saumur-Champigny AOC. Ideal for grilled meet. 88/100

Saumur-Champigny old vines, Cuvée Ferry 2009
Middle frank colour. Tipical nose bringing to mind earth vegetal, ripe red and black fruits. Supple mouth which is seductive through its fruity freshness and its fine tannins. The finale is warmer, probably linked to its young age. Some good potential. 85/100

Saumur-Champigny old vines in oak barrels, Quintessence 2008
Frank colour. Oaky grilled nose with fruits of the forest (blackcurrant, redcurrant). A racy wine, rich, with fine tannins, well integrated oak, velvety. A rich and generous cuvée which will be greater once the oak is well-matured. Beautiful wine. 90/100

Coteaux de Saumur du Château de Targé 2009 (Sweet white wine)
Beautiful bright colour. Rich and fine nose, recalling almond paste, honey, roasted fruits. Remarkable mouth, dense, rich, with a tender sweetness. The aromas are long, elegant, sophisticated. Balance between sugar and freshness: a success. 93/100
