Build your wine profiles through oak and oxygen
A clever combination of oxygen and oenological oak will enhance the elegance and finesse of your wines.
Together, our oenological oak and oxygen increase the colour intensity of red wines. They also preserve a fruity character, soften oaky notes, and add fullness on the palate. The oaky notes and balanced mouthfeel appear more harmonious.
The characteristics of the oak, the point at which it is added during the process, the quantity used, the contact time, and the temperature are all factors that affect the integration of the oak into the wine and the resulting harmony between the aromas of the two.
Vivelys has been researching these factors since 1996, and our consultants are on hand to provide advice for your wine profiles.
What do you need to know?
How long does aging take?
This will depend on the Boisé format (chips or staves), the quantity, the point of use (AF or aging), the quenching method (static or dynamic), and the desired effect. For example, for our Boisé® Origine and Signature oak pellets, it takes around 3 to 8 weeks. For our Boisé® Inspiration staves, it takes between 4 and 12 months, depending on the thickness of the staves.
