Prepping a Tonnellerie Taransaud

There wasn’t much to do to prepare one of the barrels for the journey it will take wine. We simply filled the barrel with water and let it sit over night. This wasn’t much of a task, however for the winemaker that has multiple barrels, it can become time consuming. The Tonnellerie Taransaud website had a few quotes that were thought provoking. “From the vineyard to the winery, from the forest to the barrel” was one of the quotes that makes me think that great grapes can make great wines, perhaps a great forest can make a great barrel. The other quote, “Reveal the identity of your wines.” Can a Taransaud barrel help create a wine that is superb?
