Harvest Time

Summer is coming to an end, the sun is setting earlier and earlier, temperatures are dropping and finally it’s time for the harvest.
A key moment when the expertise of the winemaker and the influence of nature converge to create the starting point for the winemaking process. A time of anticipation, tradition and effervescence.

140 grape-pickers, loyal to La Lagune for generations, hand-pick the grapes from the estate in 8 kg crates. These crates are transported as quickly as possible to the vat room. 

The harvest date is determined for each plot after numerous berry tastings and additional analytical checks.

Depending on ripeness, different parcels may be vinified together. The vats are adapted to this demanding composition : parcel-by-parcel vinification brings out all the nuances of the terroirs for a better final result.
