Making the most out of his experience in the sector, Thomas Moussie’s priority is to offer a product of the highest quality. Our cooperage offers and guarantees to you its compliance with the following requirements:

OAK'S ORIGIN CERTIFICATION

Thanks to the certification conducted by Bureau Veritas, we are able to guarantee to our clients the origin (forests) of the oaks we use for the production of SURTEP barrels.

  • 100% French oak from central France
  • 100% American oak from Missouri
  • 100% East-Rumanian oak

CERTIFICATION OF OAK’S DRYING METHOD AND TIME

Thanks to the certification conducted by Bureau Veritas, we are able to guarantee to our clients the drying method and time of the oaks we use for the production of SURTEP barrels

  • 100% natural drying during at least 24 months.

STRICT SELECTION OF OAK GRAINS

We conduct a far stricter selection of grains than the cooper’s standard. As you can realize, our tight grain does not exceed 2.5 mm, neither our mid-tight grain exceeds 3.5 and 4mm.

Grain selection:
  • Excellence: between 0.1 and 1mm
  • Extra-Tight: between 0.5 and 1.5mm
  • Tight: between 1.5 and 2 mm
  • Mid-Tight: between 2 and 3mm

THREE DIFFERENT TOASTS: VOLUPTUOUS, ELEGANCE AND COMPLEXITY

With our different types of toasts we aim to meet the needs of every customer. It is important to stress that all toasts share a common feature: wood is always as discreet as possible.

  • Voluptuous: aromatic complexity with great respect for the wine.
  • Elegance: minerality, fineness, elegance, the barrel brings out the wine’s potential
  • Complexity: strengthens the fruit in the wine.
This is a very technical topic and it requires a personal clarification (personalised presentation) supported by graphs that show the characteristics of each toast.
The touch of these 3 toasts and its discreet wood perception have been verified via tastings with SURTEP’s customers.

SURTEP DELIVERS YOU EVERY BARREL MODEL: 225L, 228L, 300L, 400L, 500L and 600L.
