Review:
(100% pinot noir from Verzenay, all from 2009; disgorged in January, 2013): Light yellow. Fresh flowers, nectarine, strawberry and pear skin on the mineral- and spice-accented nose. Gently sweet, fleshy and seamless, offering ripe pear and pit fruit flavors and a touch of chamomile. Finishes with firm grip and cut and strong spicy persistence.

Review:
The NV Brut Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru is cool, implosive and surprisingly reticent for a pure 2009. Chalk, graphite, red berries and mint emerge over time, but only reluctantly. The style is big, broad and a bit burly; in other words classic Pehu. The Blanc de Noirs is a wine for the table, where its Verzenay cut will shine. This bottle was disgorged in January 2013.
