93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A pure, elegant and airy nose combines distinct notes of citrus peel and yeast with more subtle wisps of green apple and spiced pear. I very much like the mouth feel of the middle weight flavors as they're at once firm yet fine as is the supporting mousse, all wrapped in a lingering finish that offers impressive depth and balance. This is really quite good and a relatively bargain for the price. Drink: now+."
92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "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. Drink: 2020-2026. (Nov 2020)"
91 points Wine Spectator: "A vinous style, with almond blossom, dried white cherry and citrus peel flavors underscored by a vein of salty mineral. Juicy and well-knit, with a lightly effervescent, creamy mousse, this is distinctive, with a moderate, clean-cut finish. Disgorged November 2019. Drink now through 2023. (11/30/20)"
