Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MOËT & CHANDON
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Only 240 bottles available. Unfortunately, I did not taste the Dom Perignon Luminous Brut 2008 Champagne when it was released in November 2019. So today’s 2008 Kravitz is my first tasting of this 2008 Vintage and what a great Champagne it is - one of the very best I have ever tasted. Served at a only slightly cool 16ºC, the flavours jumped of the glass. It had a bright medium straw colour with a somewhat restrained stream of very tiny bubbles. The nose was spectacular - intense, warm, farm-churned buttery brioche and ripe, lime-lemon meringue fruit along with some floral, mineral notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, intense, ripe, lime-lemon meringue flavours with a long, lingering, fairly high acid, gently toasty, faintly honeyed, harmonious, buttery-caramel-toast finish. Stunningly delicious and ready-to-drink with good effervescence. Best by it self - in fact, it tastes so good you might just want to dwell on its flavours alone. It showed extremely well in my ISO with 98-points, while the Moet flute showed a tad more richness on the palate (99-points). This 50-50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has a dosage of 5 g/L residual sugar and 12.5% alcohol and with lot number LALIV on the back label. In the deluxe category, this is a best buy!
