Everything starts with wood
Proactive Oak Maturation
All rough staves selected by SEGUIN MOREAU go to the Cognac seasoning yard for a proactive maturation process developed by the cooperage in the 1980s.
This is a unique, exclusive process that involves managing the wood so that it seasons slowly and gradually. It aims to help develop the oak's chemical and organoleptic properties, to achieve optimal aromatic and phenolic potential.
Although the rough staves are aged by uncertain natural processes, SEGUIN MOREAU can take credit for its scientific understanding of natural ageing.
We can therefore speak of controlled maturation by seasoning in the open air for 24 months on average.
