Château Rauzan-Ségla The Exceptional Bottles

The Maison Chai des Chartreux offers you a variety of prestigious flasks

Large containers have the advantage of keeping the wine longer, so aging is better. The volume of air contained in a large format is less important, so exchanges with oxygen are slower. As a result, aging will be slower. In addition, a large format will be less sensitive to changes in outside temperature, as the quantity of wine is greater, the evolution of its temperature will be slower. Large containers have a better aptitude for aging.
