  • ABC CRAFTED SERIES French Premium Medium-Toasted Oak Chip's specific particle size makes them ideal for small-batch winemaking. 
  • French oak contains high concentrations of spice and balsam aromatic compounds. It is also characterized by its high concentrations of eugenol (spice aromas) and maltol (roasted and caramel aromas).
  • Their fine grain, high porosity, and permeability make them ideal for use in winemaking. This oak’s slow component transfer makes it particularly suitable for medium- and long-duration treatments.
