Our Coopers

We chose to raise 100% of Château Clarisse wine in wooden barrels, coming from different coopers.
Each barrel brings to the wine a particular taste and a different structure, which finds all their interest at the time of the assemblages.
We also varied the volume of the containers, from the barrel of 500 l to the lightning of 40 hl, in order to preserve the purest expression of the fruit.

TARANSAUD

TARANSAUD works exclusively with French oak, proven by Bureau Veritas. In the best French forest massifs, our buyers select with the utmost rigor the oaks that meet scrupulously the quality requirements of TARANSAUD.

The log clearing is optimized by laser assistance, a system developed at Taransaud’s request. The quality of the wood, natural aging in the open air, the precision of the bousinage and the experience of our men are all factors To the wines raised in TARANSAUD barrels to assert their identity while respecting the fruit.

​FRANZ STOCKINGER

Franz Stockinger
Ses forces : 300 ans d’histoire, une sélection précise de bois nobles, des temps de séchage très longs et des chauffes les plus légères du marché.Le respect du temps et de la nature est un des axes majeurs de la philosophie Stockinger.
Les bois proviennent des meilleures régions forestières d’Autriche, d’Allemagne, de Hongrie et de Roumanie.
Les chênes sont coupés à la lune descendante, entre décembre et février où le bois est à sa densité maximale et où la sève s’est le plus retirée.
