Hubert Lamy – 2020
There is one response to “Hubert Lamy – 2020”
What does HD cuvee mean?
Lars, HD = ‘Haute Densité’ as Bill refers to in full in his notes above for teh Criots-Batard HD, St.Aubin 1er Derrière Chez Eduard HD & Puligny Les Tremblots HD.
Haute Densite refers to Olivier Lamy’s what was originally experimentation (going back quite some years), now a more wider practice, with vine planting densities to capture even more from the terroirs – as in significantly higher/greater planting densities than ‘the norm’. As you might have noted from Bill’s tasting notes Olivier makes ‘normal’ cuvees & HD fruit cuvees from the same terroirs with the HD wines commanding a significant premium & demand.
Olivier is, imho, a really top guy, great company, and superb vigneron.
And thanks to Mark for his description.
If you’d checked out the link in the first paragraph of this report, you would have had some explanation there too.
All my best
