THE ART OF MASTERING FIRE TO OBTAIN EVEN MORE FINESSE IN THE WINE’S EXPRESSION.
The toast, a determining phase, is the result of the perfect mastering of fire and its impact on the oak.
Thanks to their passionate spirit, the master coopers and oenologists from Tonnellerie Marsannay have created unique toasts that are adapted to the specific characteristics of the key grape varieties of the region.
Based on the alchemy of water, requiring constant attention, this toast is particularly aimed at delicate wines whose fruit needs protecting, to obtain roundness and respect the expression of the minerality of the grape variety.
This toast, which penetrates to the heart of the wood, with a slow, deep, and long heat (around twice as long as a traditional toast), works on the tannins of the oak, thus enabling it to accompany the wine throughout a long aging period, revealing the intense and concentrated expression of a wine that can be laid down for a long period.
Closed, this toast reinforces the empyreumatic nuances which are typical of the traditional Burgundy toast.
