The precision of oak for the elevation of wine
With Origine® barrels, Cadus offers you the possibility of choosing either wood from exceptional forests such as Jupilles, Bertranges or Tronçais or from forests located in a particular geographical area in Nièvre, Allier or Vosges, or grain quality resulting from the sorting carried out by our experts.
Vintage after vintage, this traditional approach supports the search for suitability of the origin of the wood or the quality of the grain with the different cuvées produced by our partners.
The constant and homogeneous toasting time is determined according to your choice of intensity of revelation of the aromatic compounds of the oak.

The Chambord barrel is the quintessence of French heritage and traditional coopering expertise.
The oak used for this special barrel comes from the forest of the National Estate of Chambord in the Loire Valley. This historic and exceptional oak grove surrounds the Château de Chambord, an architectural work commissioned by François the 1st in the 16th century.
The rough staves are seasoned in the open air in the heart of the Chambord park before being received at the Tonnellerie Cadus in Burgundy.
The rarity and quality of the oaks of this forest in the Loire Valley align with the greatest terroirs for aging with finesse and precision. The mention “Aged in Chambord oak barrel”* attests to the special character and relays the history associated with this very special barrel.
