 « Et vous pour qui vous votez ? » dans un repas entre amis.

Although non-Saccharomyces yeasts have long been considered harmful to alcoholic fermentation, nowadays research associates these strains with a real potential for differentiating wines. Progress in the field of molecular biology has led to the discovery of the roles played by various non-Saccharomyces yeasts. Their impact on the final composition of wine is very interesting, as they are able to enhance the complexity of the aroma profile of wines. Some can enrich the must in metabolites that ha...
Enhance varietal characters in Sauvignon Blanc
Publiée le 26/07/2019 14:33

Sauvignon blanc has been one of the largest wine success stories globally since the late 20th century. This French white grape variety has been cultivated in the Loire Valley and Bordeaux regions for centuries. Yet, it became very popular on an international level once New Zealand started to grow it and produce very fruity Sauvignon blanc wines in the 1980s. It has become New Zealand's most cultivated variety and holds its success mainly to the varietal aromas of thiol compounds.
