small wooden barrel

Colloquial term (also small barrel, small wooden barrel, small oak barrel, small oak barrel) without wine-legal significance for a barrique bar rel with a volume of 225 litres, although this can also include up to about 350 litres. The term is not unambiguous, however, because it does not necessarily have to be a barrique barrel. Larger traditional wooden barrels of various sizes are colloquially referred to as large wooden bar rels. See also complete lists under the keywords barrel, barrel and barrel types.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
