General Sensory Contribution
FOR SPARKLING WINESLalvin DV10® was selected by the SOEC in the Champagne region and is approved by the CIVC in Epernay. Lalvin DV10® has strong fermentation kinetics over a wide temperature range and low nitrogen demands. Lalvin DV10® is famous for its ability to ferment under stressful conditions of low pH (2.8-2.9), high total SO2 and low temperature and may be used for restarting stuck fermentations. Lalvin DV10® is considered a clean fermenter that respects varietal character and avoids bitter sensory contributions of other one-dimensional ‘workhorse’ strains such as Prise de Mousse.
