A true collection piece.
The perfect harmony between wood and the best long-aging wines.
Natural drying in the open air up to 60 months
Extra Fine Grain < 1,5 mm
Origin: Fontainebleau Forest, France
Our FONTAINEBLEAU barrel is created solely by the hands of our best cooper under the strictest selection and inspection of each stave.
Slow and controlled integration thanks to the best oxygen exchange rate we can find, allowing an increased polymerization of the tannins over time.
We found an increase in aromatic compounds in the wood, which are enhanced by up to 48 months of drying, such as vanillin, lactones, furfural and eugenol, giving wood that is much more aromatic and low in tannins.
Excellent aromatic richness, color stability and a soft texture of tannins in the mouth.
Selection of wood from one of the most renowned forests in France, the rare and famous Fontainebleau forest in the Île de France region. The unique characteristics of this region and the particularity of the terroir allow us to obtain a highly aromatic complexity. This forest received the “Forêt d’Exception” title from the ONF.
