Staves sorted by tannin potential

weOAK® offers a range of STAVE inserts sorted by tannin potential, using the same technology as the VICARD GENERATION 7 range (analytical selection and molecular toasting). Combining these processes allows us to adapt the toast to the raw material, and to develop reproducible aromatic expressions.

Available profiles

Low Tannin Potential selection – The terroir

ORIGINE (LTP) adds minimal tannins while offering all the benefits and complexities of oak aging. Characterized by fruity, bright notes with a focused palate.

Medium Tannin Potential Selection – Balance

SYMETRIE (MTP) offers an intermediate profile, combining structure and tension while respecting the fruit.

High Tannin Potential Selection – Structure

ENERGIE (HTP) brings an element of strength, adding structure and roundness, as well as subtle smoky notes.

Technical characteristics

  • French oak: 100% natural air-drying for 24 months minimum
  • Dimensions: Length of 900x47 mm, thickness of 11 or 17 mm
  • Holes: 15mm at each end, Hole spacing 670mm
  • Computer-controlled molecular cooking using radiant heat
  • The weOAK® products are subject to strict controls to ensure the reproducibility of their profiles. They meet all food safety and regulatory requirements.

Product benefits

Two thicknesses for greater precision, complexity, and integration:
11mm WeSTAVE is sized for time constraints.
17mm WeSTAVE is sized for more progressive and stable oak uptake, benefiting from a gradual diffusion of wood compounds.

Each profile also available in MINI version
