A spectacular wine Doyard's 2008 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Les Lumières was disgorged in November 2018 with minimal dosage. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of orange oil crisp yellow orchard fruit fresh pastry honeycomb and almond paste it's full-bodied searingly concentrated and intense with a racy spine of acidity immense depth at the core and a long electric finish. 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. This Vertus domaine numbers among my favorite addresses on the Côte de Blancs and the Doyard family's vinous incisive Champagnes deserve a place in any well-stocked cellar. Their 10 hectares?some of which are cordon-pruned and all of which are farmed without herbicides or pesticides?produce intensely concentrated grapes that are selectively pressed and vinified in wood. Deep concentrated and characterful everything that bears the Doyard label is well worth serious attention.
