In order to expand its range to better meet the expectations and specificities of its customers, Tonnellerie Saury has developed a new toasting, Lumière +, based on the Lumière toasting (long heating at low temeperature) which has already appealed to a large number of wine estates.
Lumière + corresponds to a “Lumière » toast whose fire intensity increased at the end of the process. Thanks to this evolution at the end of heating, Lumière + brings complexity to wines while keeping the characteristics of Lumière toasting which preserves fruit and freshness.
After 12 months of ageing, freshness and tension are still present, but volume in mouth is added. That is what the tastings reveals for wines aged in Lumière + toasted barrels. The aromatic profile is also different with higher vanillin contents than those observed in the Lumière heated barrels.
A more intense toast for a more marked aromatic profile and a gain in roundness, brioche and sweetness, this what Tonnellerie Saury offers you with its brand new Lumière + toast !
