Ageing in barrels and bottles

BarrelsIn the barrel cellar there lie 900 French and American oak barrels with a capacity of 225 litres each. One third of the barrels is renewed every year, so there is always a third which is brand new, another third which is one year old, being the remaining third two years old.
