In the process of production of the merrain, the French oak is split in the direction of the wood thread to guarantee a good sealing to the future barrels, a very important step which requires a special expertise. Splitting is accompanied by a loss of about 80% of the material, making it a very rare material. The antler is refined in the open air to the cooperage, classified with care and dried between 24 and 36 months in the open air. Oaks of different geographical origins give different results. The organoleptic inputs transmitted to the wine will be variable in terms of speed, intensity and typicity. The cooperage offers a wide range of barrels made from our merrains.The shavings and staves come from the same staves (100% French oak) for optimal organoleptic quality, a harmonious and controlled tannic intake.
The constant investment in the research and development of the heaters allows the range to evolve according to market expectations and consumption habits.
