There are barrels made from french oak and american oak (from California). They provide complexity to the wine, oxygenating it through theirs porosity, but without oxidation. // Hay barricas de roble francés y de roble americano (de California).

Chat. Margeaux -Gran Cru! Dear God in heaven, 2009 is the best Bordeaux vintage I've ever had. Soft, round, and full of that great Bordeaux funk. Completely opposite the usual harsh and edgy Bordeauxs. Pricey (in the mid-high 40's at most), but sooo worth it!
