Working as a traditional cooper for over 30 years, Jean-Louis Bossuet founded his cooperage in 1987, with the will to select oak staves himself and work with the best oak wood to produce quality barrels that would be recognised among the greatests "Châteaux de Bordeaux".
By developing and extending his activities, the traditional cooperage has evolved over the years, gaining the confidence of many wineries. In 1996 the company's head office and workshop were established in the village of St Simon de Bordes (45 minutes drive from Bordeaux City - 30 minutes drive from Cognac).
With consistent support and help from his wife, Christiane, Jean-Louis has successively developed a "stave mill site" and a "cooperage site", selecting wood and grains himself, and thus controlling the entire production chain of the barrels, from the beginning in the forests to the final details of the conception, guaranteeing an optimum quality. Since its creation, the cooperage has grown, but has always preserved its quality and traditional way of production.
