SEGUIN MOREAU came to Caucasia during the 1990s as part of the Russian government’s program to relaunch its cooperage industry. SEGUIN MOREAU, a world leader in the field, was chosen to provide the expertise in this Franco-Russian collaboration.
The wood and its organoleptic characteristics. Timber to produce the finest mature stave-wood is selected from vast forests of Caucasiansessile oak in the Republic of Adyghe, situated on the same latitude as France (45°N). Thewood is transformed into staves on the site, then exported to Merpins where the maturation process takes place. Finally, our coopers bring their know-how to this wood tocreate these exclusive SEGUIN MOREAU Caucasian oak barrels.
Caucasian oak is perfectly adapted to producing wines which are characterized by their freshness and a respect for terroir. It contributes structured tannins in a tight and fine combination, and aromas that are relatively low in lactones to highlight the grape’s own varietal character.
Our recommendations for use
We recommend this barrel for lively white wines with intense aromatic notes, such as those produced from Sauvignon Blanc in Bordeaux or Chenin Blanc in the Loire Valley. It also enhances elegant red wines that readily show the influence of wood such as Merlotbased, Bordeaux or Pinot Noir.
The benefits for your wine
Your wine will benefit from a contribution of the aromas and tannins popular in modern winemaking at a price below that for French-oak aging.
