Exclusively in Cognac, this dedicated cooperage for large vats boasts expert large barrel makers, many of whom have many years of proven experience. The master coopers precisely select and cut up batches of century-old oak that has matured. Like cabinetmakers, they mill the components of future vats and casks one piece at a time. Successively dismantled and then reassembled in the finishing workshop, these wooden ‘vessels’ (10 to 750hl) are then given their final decoration, before being shipped to the winery where our coopers can also travel for final assembly with a custom project in Europe, America, Asia or elsewhere. For several decades, they will serve as winemaking, assembly or maturation tools for wines and brandies, which they store in ideal conditions.
