HI-TIME'S 12 CHAMPAGNES OF CHRISTMAS

In this our 27th edition of the Twelve Champagnes of Christmas we have been able to lasso three stellar cuvées from the justly vaunted 2008 vintage. Foremost among these is Doyards's "Les Lumiéres". We taste a lot of great wines but this 2008 is simply next level in the fascinating way it subtly transforms its flavor profile in the glass. In this age of mono-varietal and mono-parcel Champagnes this gem illustrates the astonishing synergistic complexity that a Chardonnay-Pinot Noir alliance can achieve.

WINE ADVOCATE 98 POINTS - "Disgorged over a year ago with 0.8 grams per liter dosage, the 2008 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Les Lumières is a striking Champagne, unwinding in the glass with scents of pear, citrus oil, freshly baked bread, mandarin orange, almonds and buttery pastry. Full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it's layered and muscular, with an immensely concentrated core of fruit, racy acids and a long, resonant finish. As I've written before, this cuvée is a blend of first-press juice: two-thirds Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger and one-third Pinot Noir from prime holdings in Aÿ."
