This singular wine comes from 0.7 hectares in Derrière chez Edouard, which was planted 20 years ago at 30,000 vines per hectare (the vines are spaced around 30cm apart in one-metre rows). At such a density, Lamy typically gets a maximum of three tiny clusters per vine (sometimes one, sometimes none!) and the entire plot only yields enough juice to fill the contents of a single barrel. Lamy’s trials with higher densities have produced completely different wines, and he has subsequently rolled out this program in several other parcels including Les Tremblots (Puligny, 22,000 vines/ha) and within his soupçon of vines in Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet (24,000 vines/ha). As you would imagine, distributor allocations of Lamy’s Haute Densité cuvées rarely top more than a case or two and the wines are seldom tasted in the cellar.
