Review BRUNO PAILLARD N.P.U. NEC-PLUS-ULTRA CHAMPAGNE 1996
BRUNO PAILLARD N.P.U. NEC-PLUS-ULTRA CHAMPAGNE 1996
94 Points - Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media: "(a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, made from grapes grown in the grand crus Cramant, Chouilly, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Verzenay and Bouzy; disgorged January, 2009): Vivid yellow-gold. Deeply scented bouquet of dried apple, nectarine, honey, orange rind, toffee and gingerbread. Broad, palate-coating orchard and pit fruit flavors are complemented by toasty lees and spice nuances and lifted by slow-building minerality. Becomes sappier and chewier with air while retaining vivacity and finishes with outstanding power and persistence, leaving spice and mineral notes behind. This Champagne is complex enough to drink now but its depth suggests that it will repay extended aging."
