Making a wine barrel at C Gillet Cooperage --- The making of a wine barrel at C Gillet Cooperage.

Tonnellerie Claude Gillet (cooperage) shows us how a cooper creates a barrel. An oak wine barrel (barrique, pièce) is made: from oak planks; cutting them in shape, assembling the staves (planks) to a barrel, putting on the metal hoops that keep the barrique (if it's the "Bordeaux size" of 225 litres. Pièce if it's the together Burgundian 228 litre barrel) together, toasting it, i.e. burning the interior, called 'chauffe' in French to give it the characteristics required, and putting the final touches to it. Tonnellerie Claude Gillet is based in Saint Romain in the heart of Burgundy, France.
