The Range of Barrels:
The first barrel in the range is Elegance, intended for full-bodied, high-end red wines. The barrel lends structure and balance, with round and well-integrated tannins and a profound respect for the fruit.
New in 2014, the Blanc barrel is designed for white wines. Aging of high-end white wines is based on a subtle balance between the benefits of barrel aging and the risk of excessive oak impact.
Low Aroma and Elevation apply the ICÔNE concept to American oak. Low Aroma generates a respectful oak profile, while Elevation lends a powerful oak impact, with concentration and rich wood flavors.
