For over 20 years, LAFFORT has been investing in research to:
Identify and select the best tannin sources that complement the phenolic structure of wine.
Improve production and purification methods for raw materials.
Construct a greater understanding of the oenological implications of tannin usage.
Develop the methods of tannin application in accordance with the implemented oenological practices
Instantaneously dissolving (Instant Dissolving Process, IDP) ellagic and proanthocyanidic tannin preparation for
red wine vinification.
Mix of proanthocyanidic and ellagic tannins from oak in instantaneous dissolving form. Red wines
Gallic tannin in granular form to be used for white and
rosé must vinification.
Purified gallic tannin to be used for white and
rosé must vinification. Regulates oxi-reduction, increases protein stability, reduces bacterial development.
Proanthocyanidic tannins extracted from grapes using LAFFORT’s Instant Dissolving Process (IDP).
Vinification and Ageing
Gallic and chestnut tannins put to solution for the
production of sparkling wines.
Compensates for natural grape skin tannins. Stabilizes colour; enhances wine structure and palate length. Improves fining.
Proanthocyanidic tannin and ellagitannin preparation,
using LAFFORT’s instant dissolving process (IDP),
to be used in red wine maturation.
Preparation derived from proanthocyanidic tannins rich
in catechin, grape tannins and ellagic tannins from oak, using LAFFORT’s instant dissolving process (IDP),
for use during red wine maturation.
Stave wood quality ellagic tannins, extracted from oak heartwood, using LAFFORT’s instant dissolving form (IDP). For post-vinification use in red, rosé and white wine.
Preparation based on proanthocyanidic tannins and
oak ellagic tannins that dissolve instantly for rosé
and white wines.
Adding QUERTANIN® CHOC’ allows recreation of the buffering qualities provided by tannins extracted from new barrels, protecting the wine from the oxidation phenomena. QUERTANIN® CHOC’ allows a significant decrease in reductive characters, such as light mercaptans, guaranteeing improved preservation of aromatic freshness.
Ellagic tannin extracted from French & American heartwood. Regulates redox phenomenon and aids in clarification. Recreates ellagic tannins from barrels.
