Default Are brandy barrels charred?

Strange, if they re-char I wonder why they do not get the same color
contribution that a burbon maker gets from teh same barrel. Bourbon by
law cannot have any flavoring or coloring added.

How much color does the wood itself impart. I have never aged a white
wine in oak, but I have drank them....they are not particularily brown.
