New Launch of Tonnellerie Radoux USA’s Barrel Code Series
27 January, 2020

Stop by Radoux’s Unified booth, A312, to say hello to your sales representative and learn about our new barrels: the Barrel Code Series & OMEGA. Radoux USA’s Barrel Code Series will be officially launched at the 2020 Unified Trade Show.

Mindful of the ever-changing needs and expectations of our customers and international market trends, Radoux continues to prioritize the improvement of the range of our products and services.


A Cab from Bordeaux is not a Cab from Napa, and a Cab from Napa is not a Cab from Paso Robles or Walla Walla. This custom-made barrel program was developed in the US with the collaboration of US winemakers and consultants specifically for US winemaking, and is produced in the US at our Santa Rosa, CA cooperage.

Radoux USA has been working on creating a local range of barrels with local winemakers for local wine programs since 2016. The goal is to reveal the terroir and respect the true expression of the varietals grown here.

The Barrel Code Series development pulls from the know-how of Radoux and all the innovation developed over decades of research on oak (selection of grain, polyphenols, Oakscan, seasoning and maturation) and an extensive inventory or French, American and Hungarian oaks.

In 2017 Radoux USA teamed with renowned winemaking consultant Jean Hoefliger to better understand the local winemaking challenges. In the last three years 3,000+ Barrel Code Series barrels have been trialed in more than 80 wineries in California and Washington.

How do you get into the Barrel Code Series for your wines? Visit Radoux’s booth at Unified or contact your sales representative. We might have already designed a barrel that fulfills your wish!

The Barrel Codes Series barrels are locally developed and produced for the USA market and thus offer more flexibility, easier approach, faster production, and better customer service.

Radoux USA has been offering its services to the US wine, spirits and beer industries for over 25 years and is continually seeking ways to better serve our customers. Think local first!

OMEGA: Excellence, by Nature

To satisfy the increasing demand for barrels respectful of wine, fruit and terroir, Radoux has developed OMEGA, a new barrel for the aging of fine wines that was launched at the 2019 Unified Trade Show. Exceptional in its purity and finesse, Omega will reveal the identity of your wines with elegance and discretion.

The Omega barrel benefits from both OakScan, which enables the staves to be selected for moderate polyphenolic indices, and staves matured over three years. Radoux has developed a specific toast for the Omega barrel to enhance the blend of tannins of the oak with those of the wine, preserving the sweetness of the wood while the wine acquires more volume and texture. Tasting reveals that Omega gives emphasis to the fruit, with a balance between roundness, volume, tension and length on the palate. Tannins are soft, expressing freshness, elegance and finesse.

New from Tonnellerie Radoux: The OMEGA Barrel; Excellence, by Nature

OMEGA: Excellence, by nature

Mindful of the ever-changing needs and expectations of our customers and international market trends, Radoux continues to prioritize the improvement of the range of our products and services. To satisfy the increasing demand for barrels respectful of wine, fruit and terroir, Radoux has developed a new barrel for the aging of fine wines: Omega. Exceptional in its purity and finesse, Omega will reveal the identity of your wines with elegance and discretion.


Convergence of knowledge, know-how and experience

The Omega barrel is the culmination of years of research aimed at a better understanding of wood, the toasting process and their interactions with wine.


Omega’s development brings together the skills and experience of Radoux’s R&D and production teams and the advice of a select group of experts in oenology, renowned consultants, and directors of winemaking. A point of convergence of knowledge and expertise, Omega is the result of numerous exchanges, tastings, and feedback from our customers and industry professionals worldwide.


Utmost care in selecting raw material and natural maturation lasting three years

Selecting the wood is the first stage in Radoux’s demand for quality. The oak for Omega barrels comes from the most prestigious forests of central France. Only tight grain oak is rigorously selected for its development. The raw staves are dried naturally in the open air for 3 years in our integrated stave mill in the regional Park of La Brenne, benefiting from this region’s exceptional environmental conditions. Omega also benefits from Radoux’s innovation, OakScan®, which enables the instantaneous selection of staves according to their polyphenolic index.


Pure Toast: a specially adapted toasting process

For the Omega barrel, Radoux has developed a specific toasting process to promote the bond between the tannins of the wood and those of the wine. Radoux’s traditional toasts involve a slow and prolonged heating followed by a « bousinage » operation (finishing stage with an increase in temperature) of variable intensity which enhances various aromas (toast, spices, vanilla, coconut...). With the Pure toast, only the initial toasting phase is implemented - at a low temperature and in depth. This gentle, long toast preserves the sweetness of the wood (maintains the polysaccharides on the surface) and because of the low degradation of tannins, your wine will acquire more volume. The raw material is therefore fully respected and the wine enhanced.


Respect of the fruit and of its nature

Tasting reveals that the Omega barrel highlights the fruit flavor and brings a balance between roundness, volume, tension and length on the palate. The tannins are well integrated, expressing freshness, elegance and finesse. The complexity of the aromas enables the fruit to shine through while respecting its origins. The Omega barrel offers an increase in roundness and volume - while perfectly respecting the fruit and its terroir - to great, powerful wines.


The Omega barrel is only available in a capacity of 225 liters and by allocation.


For more information or to order the Omega barrel contact your sales representative or the Radoux office.
