Sensory analysis Microbiology
A new spanish study performed in collaboration with technical institutes investigates the effects of co-inoculation ( inoculation of wine bacteria 24 hours after yeast addition)  with two different  wine bacteria Oenococcus oeni  (PN4 and OMEGA under MBR form , from Lallemand oenology)  on the kinetics of malolactic fermentation (MLF), wine chemical composition, and organoleptic characteristics in comparison with spontaneous MLF in Tempranillo grape must from Castilla-La Mancha (Spain).

Microbiology Stabilisation & Bottling
In a collaborative study conducted with the ICV Group, Montpellier Supagro and the INRA Montpellier (through a PhD focusing on the genetic basis of sulfur production by yeast to identify the molecular determinants involved in the yeast’s SO₂ metabolism, carried out in 2011 by Jessica Noble with Bruno Blondin, from the INRA Montpellier as PhD supervisor), Lallemand Oenology identified, through an innovative QTL approach, the molecular basis of SO₂ production in yeast to eventually be able to re...

Sustainable development Viticulture Microbiology
In 2017, the organic vineyard areas had tripled in 10 years and approximately 5% of worldwide vineyards are now under organic certifications. The growth is also reflected in consumer consumption of organic wines, not only in Europe but all over the world where in Sweden for example, the growth is 51%, in France 36%, and in Australia, 120%.
The extraordinary & infinite world of non-Saccharomyces yeast
Publiée le 10/02/2020 11:34
Microbiology
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...
