Working has a traditional cooper for more than 30 years, Jean-Louis Bossuet has founded his cooperage in 1987, with the will to select oak shooks himself and work with the best oak wook to produce quality barrels that would be recognised among greatests "Châteaux de Bordeaux".
Developing and extending his activities with the heart, the traditional cooperage has evolved over the years, gaining many wineries's confidence. The company's head office and workshop have been installed in little village of St Simon de Bordes (3/4 an hour driving from Bordeaux City - 1/2 an hour from Cognac) in 1996.
With consistent support and help from his wife, Christiane, Jean-Louis has developped successively a "stave mill site" and a "cooperage site", selecting wood and grains by himself, and so controlling the entire production chain of the barrels, from the beginning in the forests to the final details of the conception, garanteeing an optimum quality. Since its creation, the cooperage has grown, but has always preserved its quality and traditional way of production.
