Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Face Nord is a new pure Syrah from a north-facing slope on gneiss soils, a rarity in Priorat. It fermented in plastic bins with indigenous yeasts and matured in well-seasoned French oak barrels for 12 months. It's dark and concentrated with a full-bodied palate. There are plenty of tannins that need powerful food and/or more time in bottle. Only 2,500 bottles were filled in June 2017.
