Product information "Seguin Moreau American Oak 300 l"

 Background

The wood originates from very fine-pored trees that grow in the forests of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri,Ohio and Kentucky. Before being stored outside, specialists in Perryville, Missouri examine the wood. The wood is then brought to our cooperage in Napa, California. According to the traditional method ofSEGUIN MOREAU barrels are being produced.

The timber and its sensory characteristics

American oak contains Methyl-Octalactonisomer, 2 - 5 times more than European oak. This substancegives the American oak a high aromatic potential.

The reduction of Polyosides during the toasting process results in larger proportions of Furan and enolmolecules that produce the especially appreciated "toasted" character.

Our recommendations of usage

Due to the high percentage of flavors and a low proportion of tannins, barrels made out of american oakare recommended to be used for short maturation periods. This allows reducing tannins, wheras the aroma of the wine increases. Recommended for Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Syrah and Bordeaux wines.

The benefits for your wine

American oak develops a complex, aromatic character and has positive effects on middle class wines.Roasted flavors are intensified and tannins are released.
