"In trials in Burgundy, natural drying is always preferred to artificial drying. Drying times have also been compared:
batches of wood dried for 36 months are always preferred to batches of 24 months drying. The intensity and the quality of oak are more harmonius and less astringent." The Barrel from A - Z - Tonnellerie Sirugue France
