2008 Bruno Paillard Nec Plus Ultra 'N.P.U' Extra Brut Champagne
Winemaker Notes: N.P.U. – « Nec Plus Ultra » was born from the idea to create the greatest possible Champagne wine, whatever the constraints. For this, decisions were made at the highest level for each stage of its development. From this crazy dream was created a champagne at the height of winemaking…
N.P.U. – The Ultimate.
Wine Enthusiast - "This Champagne is produced from grand cru vineyards in exceptional years only. Rich fruits and layers of spice mingle with the toastiness of maturity in this equal blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wine is now ready to drink.."
Vinous - "The 2008 Extra Brut N.P.U. Nec Plus Ultra is a brilliant, taut Champagne. The combination of vintage and the extra brut style favored a Paillard that yields a young Champagne that is quite austere. It will be interesting to see if the 2008 fills out with time in bottle. Today it is piercing in its intensity. Disgorged: April, 2019."
Wine Spectator - "This mouthwatering version offers a creamy, lightly mouthcoating texture, providing a fine, cashmere-like wrap around the steely spine of acidity. Bright and deftly knit, offering a lovely range of ripe white cherry and apricot fruit, fleur de sel, brioche and crystallized honey flavors. Briny mineral and oyster shell notes linger on the finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Disgorged April 2019. Drink now through 2033. 398 cases made, 72 cases imported."
