Premier Wine Cask represents an array of fine barrels and winemaking products from Europe and America.
For centuries, wines of distinction have been crafted through the union of perfectly seasoned wood and fine coopering. The same can be said between the cooper and the “merrandier éleveur” (wood steward). Giraud takes the same approach in producing artisanal barrels to client specifications and through attention to detail. Although now considered a “modern concept”, this type of association has been around for generations in Cognac, where the négociant supplies his seasoned wood to an outside cooper for the production of his own barrels.
We are pleased to announce the establishment of our new brand of American oak barrels backed by our more than 30 years of wine production and barrel experience. Combining a specific mix of Missouri and Minnesota oak with our proprietary toasting approach, we continue to offer our clientele a great American oak barrel option.
Starting in January, we are pleased to partner with this small, highend Burgundian barrel producer for your Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rhone varietal programs. Thibaut Montgillard has been crafting exquisite barrels for over 20 years, and is a great addition to our list of high-end products we are proud to offer you.
Many of the world's finest wines are made in concrete tanks. Concrete fermenters have been used widely in Europe for many years. Concrete "breathes" like oak. It is semi-permeable which concentrates the wine, while gently diffusing oxygen without adding oak character. Concrete provides the benefits of oak and the efficiency of stainless while producing a fine wine. Today, some of the finest wines in America are being fermented and stored in concrete tanks.
