Product details

LALVIN NBC™ was Isolated from a Chardonnay fermentation by the Centre Oenologique de Bourgogne (COEB), France. It was selected for making fresh and refined Chablis-style Chardonnay with enhanced floral, citrus and mineral notes, but is also well-suited for making rosés and Rhône style whites. Wines are described as elegant and well-balanced with fresh fruit aromas and preserved acidity. NBC™ is suitable for barrel fermentations and has excellent compatibility with malolactic bacteria. It has a short lag phase, low production of SO2, and acetaldehyde.”
