The oak barrel for grands crus

OBJETIVE /

Zero tertiary aromas

Toasted with lava stone, PETRA grand cru barrels are designed in collaboration with oenologists anxious to offer unique wines, that enhance their terroir and express the values ​​of their property.

Designing oak barrels that do not affect the wine.

Mission impossible?

Consumers are coming back from parkerized wines. Unfortunately, the wood and the toast have standardized the taste and altered the identity of each property, spoiling the efforts of oenologists and the pleasure of connoisseurs.

Our mission: Providing specialist advice and barrels without compromising on quality.

Our secret

An innovative and patented process,

which is unique in the world!

The finest

wood

We select the best oak by working

only with 3 origins, which are traced and controlled.

100% natural

drying

We produce fresh barrels in small

batches and perform double

tests on its sealing.

Toasting without

combustion

Exclusive: We toast our

barrels with lava stones

according to 3 aromatic philosophies.

Iceland, Russia, Japan…

Our stones come from the world’s end to allow you

to create an authentic wine, based on the fruit, finesse and elegance.

Our method

We design our barrels to achieve

the taste aimed by each oenologist.

Discovery

face

Wine-tasting and the description of the oenologist's objectives give place to a tailor-made recommendation.

The making

of ad hoc barrels

We produce a small batch of barrels according to 4 parameters which contribute to the final result.

Supported implementation

The batch of definitive barrels will join the cellar after an in situ test and a taste control.

A word from the founder

Thomas Moussie

“I discovered the facets of wine creation in France and internationally. I really wished to give back the power to oenologists, whose art fascinates me, but I couldn't find a job which was consistent with my philosophy. So I created my own cooperage in search of the perfect barrel. Today SURTEP offers the PETRA range, toasted with lava stone, and a more classic high-end range.”
