Critical Acclaim

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Mar 2021

"Disgorged in November 2019, the latest release of Pehu-Simonet’s NV Brut Grand Cru Face Nord is showing nicely, offering up aromas of white flowers and walnuts mingled with hints of orange oil and crisp yellow apple. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and incisive, with racy acids and chalky grip, it will unwind further with a little time on cork." (90 pts.)

WS94 Wine & Spirits 12/21

"Based on the 2017 vintage, this blend includes 30 percent from a perpetual reserve established in 2005. It’s focused on David Pehu’s parcels in Verzenay, Verzy and Sillery, weighted toward pinot noir (70 percent), and it is red fruit thats pours out of the glass. Powerfully structured as a young wine, with a hint of vanilla bean (20 percent of the base wines were vinified in oak), this is more accessible a day after the cork is popped: The mineral acidity turns frisky, the layered intensity of cèpes and chalk mellows toward generosity." (94 pts.)

VN91 Vinous Dec 2019

"David Pehu’s NV Brut Face Nord is surprisingly open for a Champagne made from vineyards in Verzenay and Verzy, where the wines tend to be more steely and taut. Spice, dried flowers and red Pinot fruit build in a soft, caressing Champagne that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Time in the glass brings out attractive freshness, lift and energy. This is a terrific introduction to David Pehu’s range. Even with the blocked malolactic fermentation, this is a pretty supple and inviting Champagne. The interplay of fruit richness and vibrancy is compelling. Disgorged: March 2018." (91 pts.)

WS88 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2015

"This is 70 percent pinot noir from Verzenay and Verzy, the balance chardonnay from Verzenay. It’s chalky and has not begun to evolve, showing some toasted almond notes through a smooth texture, pithy and firm. Give this a year in bottle to develop." (88 pts.)

VN92 Vinous Nov 2020

"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. Disgorged: November 1, 2019." (92 pts.)

Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
