Tonnellerie Cadus French Oak

Tonnellerie Cadus Burgundian cooperage; building barrels with elegant, understated aromatics that give structure and support to your wine or cider with finesse. Available in 225/228L, 265L, and 500L.

Our Sensoriel Series uses our patented Pur® toasting method to coax the desired result out of the wood. One style, one barrel: Ideal for both shorter or longer aging programs; available in all sizes. Want to preserve the wine’s verve, acidity, and freshness? Try the Equilibre. If it’s a round, lush mouthfeel and a weighty mid-palate you’re after, the Volume is perfect. And then there’s the Intense, because there are times when east coast fruit demands a bolder barrel (think Petit Verdot). All designed to fully integrate in 12 months or less. 

Access: A great solution if you are looking for a classic French oak barrel at a highly competitive price. Available in all sizes and toasts.

C by Cadus®: Our flagship barrel is all about terroir and respects and supports the wine without influencing its character or locking its energy.

CAB by Cadus®: The newest barrel in our lineup is built just for Bordeaux varieties and blends. With a blend of oak that gives just the right amount of tannin structure and aroma, CAB by Cadus is perfect for cool- or warm-climate wines alike.

Our Origine Series focuses on traditional grain selection and fire-toasting methods for conventional aging.  This method relies on the density of the oak staves to produce an effective bioreactor. Traditional fire-toasts include M, M+, M++ (adding time, not temperature, for a long, slow extraction), as well as our new blond toast, M-. Medium Minus toasting results in the barest aromatic element and centers instead on structure for fruit-focused reds like Merlot and Cabernet Franc. We love it for clients interested in dialing back on new oak impact.

A hand-split log is cut into rough staves for shaping into finished barrel staves.
