Thiméo French Oak Barrel

Tonnellerie Bossuet

Pricing available upon request

The Thiméo French oak barrel is a top of the line wine barrel, made from a selection of oak wood direct from forests in the Center of France. Thiméo brings all of the benefits of oak but the extra tight grains achieve these benefits without the oak flavors. The results are elegant, your fruit is optimized, and wines take volume with soft ending tannins.

Ideal for: Delicate Red Fruit such as Merlot, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir where delicate and feminine aging is important.

Located in St Simon de Bordes, between Bordeaux and Cognac, Bossuet Cooperage is more than 25 years old and has built a strong reputation for producing high quality barrels for both French wineries and abroad. The cooperage focuses primarily on brand new oak barrels, and we have worked with Bossuet to develop a core selection for customers. These are not discount barrels by any means but are exceptional quality wine barrels produced in France with top quality oak. Bossuet Cooperage produces approximately 8000 barrels a year.

Bossuet may be less known here in Virginia than some of the larger cooperages, but has been making excellent barrels for decades and takes great pride in the reputation of their family owned cooperage.
