French term or phrase: élevage de vin
"esprit d'authenticité dans...et d'élevage"

"chai à barrique destiné à l'élevage et l'affinage du vin".

I've got "affinage" as maturing (which I don't particularly like, but that's another issue) and "nurturing" for "élevage" - maybe involves giving the wine an oak flavour, etc.

Any ideas?
