LAFFORT® now puts at the disposal of winemakers a tool for the production of wines of a great aromatic purity (very low production of negative sulphur compounds (including SO2 and H2S) and compounds binding SO2). Zymaflore® XPURE contributes masking the perception of green characters and enhances the aromatic freshness and the expression of black fruit notes. Wines fermented with this yeast provide great mouthfeel smoothness.

Fermentation qualities and œnological aptitudes are the two essential criteria LAFFORT uses to select ZYMAFLORE® yeasts. LAFFORT's R&D department has developed two techniques:

  • Terroir selection: selection of dominant yeasts in wines from the best "terroirs".
  • Breeding: consists of cross-breeding two strains, with no GMO involvement, then isolating a strain in the offspring which displays the desired parental characteristics. This technique allows for higher strain selection precision.
