Schneider Cuvee Barrique: French Oak Chardonnay

$ 21.99

Tomorrow we get a very small amount of a very special beer.  In 2010 Brewmaster at Schneider Hans-Peter Drexler started a new project: maturing some of his finest beers in wine barrels. He consulted a close friend, brewmaster Jérôme de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland, who grew up in a wine producing family. Together they created a truly unique doppelbock. In Aventinus Cuvée Barrique, fresh Aventinus and Aventinus Eisbock are aged in separate barrels for up to 8 months, and then expertly blended into a tannin-rich cuvée.  

This year we are getting small amounts of two different barrels of single barrel Barrique.  One is a blend aged in French Oak Chardonnay barrels.  The other is aged in Bourbon Barrels.  There was a total of 35 cases of each of these that was sent to America, 3 cases of each came to Maine.
