François Frères makes it a point of honour to deliver barrels our clients can trust.
We have mastered procurement thanks to our purchasing practices: we buy from the best oak forests.
The seasoning of the wood lasts 2- 4 years and takes place at our site in Saint-Romain, above the Côte de Beaune. In this way the staves benefit from a semi-continental climate which gives excellent results.
Toasting is precisely controlled through careful handling of duration and temperature. The commitment and knowledge of our team of barrel-makers allows us to guarantee our casks, meeting standards that we have maintained through the years.
