The planting density in Champagne is around 8,000 vine plants per hectare.

The aim of such a density is to optimise fruit quality. The more numerous the plants, the more they compete for nutrients and therefore the lower the crop load per plant. If the vine plant has a small crop load, all of its reserves will be devoted to this load and to its quality.
