The harvest, which is conducted manually throughout all of Champagne, is an important time in our region. The perfume of celebration permeates the air. It is the reward for a year’s worth of diligent work. The grapes are the focus of our attention; harvest maturity, the sorting of grapes in difficult years, the journey of the resulting grapes from the picking to the pressing center to immediate pressing…these steps are crucial, as the raw material must be perfect.
