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

11 and 17mm

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.


Profiles available without tannin potential, with the convection toasting:


Technical characteristics

  • French oak: 100% natural air-drying for 24 months minimum
  • Dimensions: Length of 900x47 mm, thickness of 7, 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

Three thicknesses for greater precision, complexity, and integration:
weSTAVE 7 mm is ideal for very short-term aging.
weSTAVE 11mm is designed for gradual contributions over a reasoned period.
weSTAVE 17mm allows gradual and lasting additions by promoting a gradual diffusion of oak compounds.

Each profile also available in MINI version
