Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France
Grape Varieties: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot (Percentages vary depending on the vintage)
Vinification: The grapes are all picked by hand and taken to the cellar in small crates. After meticulous manual sorting, followed by optical sorting, the best grapes are delicately put into vats for fermentation. The tannin and anthocyanins are gently extracted in order to obtain elegant wines. The final blend of wines from the finest plots are done during aging.
Aging: La Lagune is matured exclusively in French oak barrels, of which 50% is renewed each year. The wines are racked several times in order to eliminate the primary lees and allow for a refined aging. A final refinement with egg whites is completed just prior to bottling.
