THE ORIGIN OF WOOD
We can guarantee the origin of our oak. Our raw material comes from France (Allier, Vosges, Jupille, Bertrange), central Europe and the Caucasus.
The selection of wood requires a great knowledge of the forest. The oak is at least 120 years old and more often it is 170 years old.
from log to stave
The importance of the wood splitting operation is decisive for obtaining the guarantee of the sealing of future oak staves. Our highly qualified teams split the staves respecting the grain of the wood.
from stave to stave
The machining of the barrel includes the following steps: dolling and jointing.
The art of toasting: the intensity and duration will give the barrel the characteristics sought after by our customers. Depending on the chosen toast, the molecules present in the oak will give off different aromas in the wine.
