THE BEST OF THE OAK
- The strictest specifications in the world.
100% of French Haute Futaie oak comes from the French national forests.
- A team of specialists: 3 qualified buyers and a team dedicated to checking the rough staves piece by piece.
-An exclusive seasoning process: proactive maturation.
By creating homogenous and constant conditions of maturation, SEGUIN MOREAU ensures that it can reproduce the physio-chemical transformation of the oak.
- Commitment to sustainable forest management
The first cooperage in the world to be certified PEFC.
Through its partnership with the O.N.F. (French Forestry Commission) the cooperage supports the replanting of the national forests of Braconne and Vierzon.
THE SKILL OF THE COOPER
- Respecting the raw material
Only split wood is used in SEGUIN MOREAU’s barrel making process: using straight fiber guarantees that the barrels remain watertight.
- Attention to detail
SEGUIN MOREAU pays close attention to the details which contribute to the precision and quality of its barrels. Modern technology has adapted itself to safeguard the benefits which have been confirmed by experience.
- Passing on its savoir faire

- An exceptional standard of finish, faithful to tradition
