Garonnaise - French Oak Barrels
Offered in 22mm and 27mm. 24 months’ seasoning in the yard. Available from 225L to 600L fine-grain oak from mature forests. Wood assembly decided according to a forest zoning scheme specific to our cooperage. A single toasting programme combining a wood fire toast and a heat radiation toast. The tannic profile of the Expression barrel gives the wine suppleness. It provides roundness as well as a very full mid-palate. Its aromatic profile offers a mellow, well integrated woodiness as well as great complexity. This barrel develops spicy, peppery (white pepper) notes, sometimes with a hint of liquorice. All these aromas are flavour enhancers which showcase the fruit without masking or overburdening it.
