In Tronçais forest
We have always valued exceptional 'terroirs' which enable us to produce quality barrels. This is the reason we buy our oak from what is referred to as 'timber forest', from the forest of Allier, notably from Tronçais, the most prestigious forest, where the hundred year old trees were planted under the orders of Colbert.
In order to guarantee that our barrels have the greatest complexity and character, we use a blend of wood from different areas, much like a wine producer blends different grape varieties from different vineyards. We also use wood from the forest of Jupilles, as well as wood from the Vosges. The combination of the organoleptic characteristics found in the wood enables us to make excellent barrels.
