These sophisticated barrels are water-bent, in the tradition of southern Burgundy where the cooperage is located. The combination of heat and moisture during toasting creates a generous but gentle oak profile characterized by sweet spice and round texture. Available in all Burgundy, Bordeaux styles and Puncheons.
For three generations Dargaud & Jaegle has crafted fine barrels for the greatest wineries in the world. Exhaustive wood selection, combined with an unwavering commitment to traditional craftsmanship, make the Dargaud & Jaegle barrels predictably elegant. D&J’s unique water-bending process conducts heat from an oak fire deeply into the wood to create a subtle and sophisticated spiciness that is unmatched by any other barrel.
