THE BLEND BARREL
Only perfect staves coming from the finest French Oak with extremely tight grain (less than 1.5 mm) are used for making this barrel. At each stage of the process, the barrels are closely examined and immediatly rejected if any fault is detected in order to achieve impeccable quality.
Wood which meets these demanding criteria is rare and a specific purchasing policy is applied in the finest
forests: the Blend Barrel is therefore produced in strictly limited quantities, depending on the availabilty of the raw material.
This is what makes it the most sought after barrel, a worldwide choice among the most prestigious wines.
FOR THE FINEST WINES
The Blend Barrel has a high aromatic potential, with a very slow extraction, and represents a real quality
investment for the Cellar Master. It is recommended for wines which are to be aged over long periods and can reveal
its potential over several vinification cycles.
The extreme tighness of its grain gives the wine maximum aromatic complexity, progressively released during aging for a delicate contribution of structure, with fine and supple tannins.
