olivier lamy and the spreading of haute densité

Olivier makes a very special wine with his Derrière Chez Eduard HD, though sadly there is very little of it. But in all my discussions with him I don’t recollect that he told me he’d done the same in other vineyards too. As soon as I saw that he may have a Puligny Tremblots HD, I asked the question:

“Pictures will come as soon as I have some time. But for the Puligny-Montrachet, in 2001 we planted 2 new vines between the old vines, so now have 20 000 plants/ha for an area of ​​approximately 6 ares (0.06 ha). We did the same thing in the Criots Bâtard-Montrachet at same time. But the young plants are very slow to develop because of the competition from the old vines. It’s been about 11 years and I now find these vines quite nice, so I decided to vinify a little – 1 barrel – of Puligny HD 2012.”

    Happy to have a tasting of the HD next time you’re in London – have a 6-pack each of the 08, 09, 10 and 11.
