TYPES OF BARREL
We make barrels of many different sizes ranging from the ‘ huitième ’ that holds just 28 litres, up to the 600 litre ‘demi-muid’.
Our most popular barrel is the 205 litre ‘pièce champenoise’ which is the size traditionally used in Champagne, however we also make a significant number of 228 and 300 litre barrels that are the sizes used in Burgundy.
To meet the varied requirements of our customers and their wines we offer a range of staves of different thickness and several variations of toasting in order to produce very precise organoleptic characteristics.
For our customers in Champagne we can also offer a special bespoke service using oak from specific villages. This is a wonderful way to lend a clear point of differentiation to your wines, to enhance their presentation and to position them as prestige products.
Please contact us for more information about the villages and forests for which we can offer this service.
Last but not least, we are happy to discuss using oak from our clients’ private estates and forests. 10 and 40 hectolitre vats are also available.
