Bruno Paillard
N.P.U. Nec Plus Ultra Rosé 2008 (EN)


Cuvée N.P.U., short for Nec Plus Ultra, was born of an unshakeable determination to produce the very best Champagne, whatever the cost and constraints. It all starts with a harvest of excellence. Since its creation, only eight vintages have been judged to meet Bruno Paillard's exacting standards: 1990, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2004 and finally 2008.

Champagne Piper-Heidsieck Vintage 2014 Note 90

The Structure

Discover the structure of this Champagne


Harmonious balance between the various components of acidity.


Supple, easy-drinking champagne, the acidity doesn't clash with the palate.


Generous champagne with great intensity.

Long on the palate

Champagne aromas linger on the palate.


Precise, energetic yet calm attack. This year's vivacity is admirably integrated, further deepening the wine's complexity, supported by a soft, velvety texture. The multiple aromas perceived on the nose are echoed on the long, suspended finish.

Chef's word

L'arcane cuvée Ruinart blanc de blancs

Like all excellent white wines, to enjoy this wine to the full, you need a slightly cool temperature (start at 8 to 10°, then gradually warm up), a glass with a fairly wide body and a slightly narrow rim. This demanding wine will only reveal its secrets with a certain amount of patience.
