Tasting Notes

Aromas of lemon mixed with notes of ripe fruit, apricot and green apple. On the palate, the attack is lively, the balance and the finesse of Chardonnay are omnipresent with a slightly mineral finish.

Review:
The NV Brut Face Nord is a gorgeous, expressive wine. For the Face Nord David Pehu blends 70% Pinot and 30% Chardonnay from Verzey and Verzy, both of which yield nervy, racy wines. The inclusion of 30% perpetual reserve back to 2005 helps fill out the layers while adding notable complexity. Cherry, Mirabelle plum, spice and exotic white flowers give the Face Nord striking aromatic complexity and a touch of exoticism that are so alluring.
