Natural air seasoning of the staves for 24 months, using the chimney stacked method, results in a profound softening of coarse, bitter tannins and a great homogeneity of seasoning. The “Délicatesse” barrel brings out the wine’s fruit characters to perfection, without overburdening its tannic structure. It is particularly recommended for maturing aromatic white wines, but also certain red varieties where elegance is sought.

The Umami range

In Japanese culture, Umami is a 5th taste perceivedon the palate (sweet, salty, acid, bitter and umami).
Its savoury taste acts both as a connection between the different aromatic elements of a dish, and a flavour enhancer. In collaboration with the Research and Development department of the Charlois group, we at Tonnellerie Bernard have created a barrel that we have named Umami.
We have effectively harnessed the incredible flavour enhancing quality of oak by working on specific selections of wood and seasoning the staves using the chimney stacked method.
We wanted to create a flavour catalyst for your wines, capable of emphasising the fruit naturally present in the grapes through this difficult-to-describe sensation known as umami, which gives both succulence and savouriness.

The Spirits range

Tonnellerie Bernard propose traditional large format barrels for maturing spirits.

Making a barrel in which to age spirits has many parallels with the making of a great spirit itself. Just like in the ageing of an eau-de-vie, we take our time and mature our staves in the open air for between 24 and 36 months.

Then, judicious selection of the grains and the choice of toasting allow us to attain the perfect balance in accord with your requirements – suppleness and refinement or smoothness and power – whilst highlighting the aromatic palette of your spirits.
