Stave Balance

Origin of the product

Our staves are produced with oak (Quercus petraea. L. and Quercus robur. L.). Laglasse participates to the PEFC program. The staves are in open air dried for a period of 24 months. During this aging period, the oak will release its strongest tannins and moisture. With this long maturation process the oak will be ready lend its finest phenolic components and aromas to the wine.
