(from a vine density of 22,000 vines/ha). This is aromatically similar to the regular cuvée with perhaps just a touch more prominent floral component. The similarities end there however as there is more interesting texture to the firmer and denser flavors that brim with dry extract on the saline, chiseled and bone dry finish. (91-93)/2024+
Lamy’s Haute Densité is an appreciable step up over the very creditable regular cuvée. Indeed, it’s hard to think of a superior village Puligny. A reserved nose of lemon oil, noble reduction, citrus pith and chalky soil tones is subtly framed by new oak, leading into a full-bodied, multidimensional and complete palate with almost electric levels of energy. It has superb depth, with chewy levels of extract and concentration, and a long, lingering finish. This surpasses many premiers crus in quality.Drinking Window 2023 - 2040.(WK)
The 2016 Haut Densité version of les Tremblots is really lovely, with a greater sense of elegance than is found in the regular bottling, not to mention significantly more complexity out of the blocks. The excellent bouquet delivers scents of pear, apple, lemon zest, a touch of fresh almond, lovely soil tones, a dollop of vanillin oak and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, refined and focused, with a lovely core, great chalky mineral drive and excellent cut and grip on the perfectly balanced finish. Tout en finesse. 2020-2040.
Pale lemon-yellow. Rather forbidding scents of lemon, crushed rock and spices. Displays almost painful citric cut in the mouth, along with a wild metallic quality, a saline component and a leathery nuance. The penetrating citrus and stone finish displays terrific grip and saline persistence. Another remarkable village wine in the making. Lamy noted that these densely planted vines produced a higher yield than usual, but still only 30 hectoliters per hectare.(ST)
