Staves are an alternative and economic solution to give to the wine the structure and the flavours consumers like.
The LAGLASSE company produces and sells high quality staves. His geographic location, his knowledge and the technics employed are the key of the exceptional quality of his products.
The soil : the Vosges.
The Vosges mountains, located in the East of France, have the reputation to be one of the most famous soil for French oak. The oak which Laglasse uses, has a very thin grain and can develop incomparable aromas.
Drying the wood in the open air
The wood is stored in the open air on the stocking area and it liberates , step by step, his tannin and his dampness. After 12 months on the stocking area, it is ready to give its most delicate aromas.
A tidy manufacturing
A stave has 970 mm length, 47 mm width and 7 mm thickness. A hole of 12 mm can be pierced in each piece. The production needs a 6 stage process :
- width calibration
- length calibration
Every stave of the production is rigourously controlled.
