N.P.U., Neo Plus Ultra, the summit of Paillard's range, is a blend from four Grands Crus vineyards. Half-and-half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay give a wonderfully rounded, mature wine that is at its pinnacle for drinking now. It is rich, full in the mouth, mingling toast with ripe grapefruit and quince fruits.
