Bruno Paillard Nec Plus Ultra 1999
Web Price: $284.00
N.P.U. stands for "Nec Plus Ultra" - a latin phrase which literally means "There is nothing beyond"... A highly ambitious statement which describes precisely what this wine is: a unique Champagne for which the most demanding choices were made at each stage of its production, regardless of their costs... From this crazy dream was born N.P.U.
Produced exclusively from the first pressing - the purest - of the finest grapes grown in 4 "Grand Cru" villages of the Champagne region. The first fermentation was conducted in small French Oak barrels, 42 of which were selected and blended in July 2000, producing 11,508 bottles. The composition is 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot noir.
