This year, 2023, marks the 150th anniversary of Saury Cooperage.

To mark this occasion, Saury Cooperage has created the “150” barrel, a limited edition for this year, numbered and produced in 150 copies.

This barrel pays tribute to Saury’s family and to rare oaks used in cooperage, whose average age is 150 years.

The staves used to make these barrels have been selected since 2020 according to very specific criteria, linked to the fineness of the grains and quality of soils in which oak trees have been harvested. The selection criteria for stavewood used to make the “150” barrels have also been established with a view to ensuring reproducibility for future vintages.

Thus, each year, we will include the “150” barrel in our catalog:

  • A blend of stavewood from French oaks selected from forest massifs whose terroir offers very fine grain.
  • Merrain: extra fine grain; stave thickness 22 mm
  • Bordeaux Château 225L barrel
  • Chestnut hoops and bottom bar; black hoops
  • Black glass bung
  • Barrel finish: guistrée
  • Individual barrel numbering from 1/150 to 150/150

A true ally for maturing our customers’ wines, the “150” barrel combines a set of quality criteria that reflect exceptional character of ancestral know-how of Saury cooperage coopers!
