OENOCHIPS is a range of woodchips selected by the ICV Group and produced by SEGUIN MOREAU. It’s dedicated to a quick ageing of wines. 3 items are available:


OENOCHIPS R02, reinforces the structure of the wine in the mouth, enhances expression of fresh fruity notes in your wines and develops balanced sensations  in the mouth. We selected this blend of french oaks of different toasts to match the specific character of Mediterranean and Rhone wines (red and white). OENOCHIPS R02 are the optimum woodchips for ageing an elegant, fruity wine.


OENOCHIPS R03 is a blend of French and American oak. It gives vanilla, toasted notes to the nose. In the mouth, it gives sweetness, roundness to the tannins, and length in the final.


OENOCHIPS EXCEPTION, is a high range woodchips, composed of fresh Sessile French oak. The best trees are selected thanks to analysis of aromatics compounds. It gives a lot of sweetness to the mouth, and it’s very respectful of the fruit of the wine.
