EN Lactoenos B7

In the aim of providing winemakers with a solution adapted to their needs for an effecient and simple product to use for the MLF management, and after 4 trial campaigns in the Southern and the Northern hemisphere, LAFFORT® launches LACTOENOS® B7 DIRECT.
With this bacterium, LAFFORT® presents to winemakers a tool combining a high malolactic performance in red, white and rose wines with pH ≥ 3,2 and an easy to use product; LACTOENOS® B7 DIRECT can be directly inoculated into the wine.

Derived from its research on malolactic fermentation, LAFFORT has selected different bacterial strains for their oenological aptitudes and has developed production and inoculation procedures specific to each. LAFFORT’s straistrain-production technology combination provides professionals with optimal MLF control at competitive prices.

MALOSTART® : Malolactic bacterial activator. Increases lactic acid bacteria populations and ensures significantly faster MLF kinetics. In the case of wines with a low nutrient content (thermovinification, absence of lees, very low turbidity…), or after sluggish alcoholic fermentation, in difficult conditions (high % alcohol, late or «spring» MLF…), sluggish malolactic fermentation.

Type of inoculation Step


early co-inoculation 24 h after AF start-up.

SB3 Direct® ,
450 PreAc®

Saves time and avoids MLF failure. Optimised fermentation management. Reduced production of diacetyl. Reduction of compounds combining SO2 in the wine
Late co-inoculation tardive 1010 density

SB3 Direct® ,
B7 Direct
450 PreAc®

Monopolisation of the ecosystem. Secures a traditional vinification process (AF then MLF).
Sequential inoculation

After AF, at pressing.

  SB3 Direct® ,
B7 Direct

450 PreAc®

MLF after post AF maceration. MLF in barrels.

Curative inoculation Later...

In the case of wine with a low malic acid content (<1 g/L), we advise the adoption of a specific protocol to successfully manage MLF.”
