What the Critics say
Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
Made Only in truly great vintages. The first ever N.P.U – Nec Plus Ultra, a 1990 vintage, was released in 2002. Only five have followed since, each of different temperaments: 1995, 1996, 1999, 2003 and now 2002
Of the 320 villages in Champagne, only 17 are entitled to the “Grand Cru” appellation; grapes selected to create N.P.U. “Nec Plus Ultra” are sourced from just four of them: Oger, Chouilly, Verzenay and Mailly. These are the noblest amongst the Grands Crus of the north of Champagne.
The different crus that are blended into the N.P.U are fermented in small wood barriques imparting even more character to a very special wine.
