Rating : Robert Parker 91/100
« It has a subtle bouquet with Jasmine, Mirabelle, yellow plum and linseed aromas that gather momentum in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with light lemon peel and hazelnut notes. This is a minimalist Magnetic North, tensile and focused, again more about the texture than over flavors, stem ginger tingling on the saline aftertaste. It is one of those enigmatic wines that poses more questions and answers, but occasionally that's just what you seek from a wine. » (Wine Advocate 2017 - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Il présente un bouquet subtile de jasmin, de mirabelle, de prune jaune et de graine de lin qui s'accumulent dans le verre. La bouche est très bien équilibrée avec des notes de peau de citron et de noisettes. C'est un Magnetic North minimaliste, tendu et droit, une fois de plus axé sur la texture plus que des parfums extraits, avec des notes de picantes de gingembre frais dans une finale saline. C'est un de ces vins énigmatiques qui amène plus de questions que de réponses, mais occasionnellement c'est juste que vous recherchez dans un vin.
