Tonn. Bossuet (French Oak)
Description: Wood is sourced from Haut Futai forests in Central France and the Loiire Valley. They arand coopered in France and sold in the US by The Boswell Company.
"Specializing in thin-stave Bordeaux barrels, BOSSUET house toast uses and extensive amount of water to achieve the desired color and aroma. The majority of Jean-Louis' barrels are made with this house toast."
This is not a sweet barrel for Bordeaux varietal wines in Sonoma. We tasted Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon wines aged in these barrels. The French oak was cedar, though not as planky as Segui Moreau Margaux barrels. The American oak had no coconut, was cedar like too. Better aromatics than tastes.
