Product details

PURE-LEES™ is a new range of specific inactivated yeasts developed and produced from an innovative process called High Pressure Homogenization (HPH™). This mechanical process leads to the disruption of wine yeast cells to maximize the interaction capacity of yeast constituents with the wine matrix. PURE-LEES ELEGANCY™ is more concentrated in insoluble fractions that allows an optimal sorption of harsh/astringent/bitter tannins. Applied towards the end of the alcoholic fermentation, PURE-LEES ELEGANCY™ allows the removal of aggressive tannins and the improvement of the wine texture quality, leading to wines with more elegancy.

Selected by Developped by Lallemand R&D in collaboration with INRAE and SupAgro Montpellier
