Cognac, It’s All About the Barrels - PALATE PRESS | The Cognac and its vineyards | Scoop.it
I returned with a newfound interest and a deep curiosity towards the very precise, and creative barrel regimen techniques used by cellar masters in Cognac.
Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:

Half of French cooperages are located in the Cognac country. No coincidence to this.

One barrel has to be kept from its production day, for more than 50 years, only for aging cognac and nothing else.
