The book has been entirely rewritten in the light of the most recent discoveries in history, silviculture and chemistry, to help explain oak barrels' effect on wine's sensory characteristics. From the species of oak to the winemaker's choices, it describes all the parameters that vary the intensity and quality of the woody character.

The 56 pages of illustrated and educational text are completed by a notebook about barrel making and associated vocabulary (4 pages).

Unlike concrete and stainless steel, wood imparts aromas to wine. This box set contains the 12 aromas most representative of woody notes in wine: 1 oak, 2 green wood (fault), 3 coconut, 4 vanilla pod, 5 woody-spicy, 6 clove, 7 smoky, 8 medicinal, 9 new leather, 10 roasted coffee, 11 burnt sugar, 12 candied orange.

A new addition to this update, each bottle now comes with a large index card (16 x 23 cm) detailing the aroma's origin.

Aromas are guaranteed 5 years. They can last 10 years if kept in good conditions.
