In 2016 Jean-Michel Jacob decided to do a little experiment. He picked a parcel of Hautes-Côtes de Beaune 'Les Larrets' Blanc. He put half into standard French bariques (this product) and half into barrels made from Acacia (click here to view). Both were raised exactly the same and bottled separately at the same time. It is fascinating to see these wines next to each other.
There is definitely lineage evident but the wood treatment results in two different wines. 2018 is an excellent vintage for whites, with great concentration and bright acidity. JH 2019
