A strain selected by the Institut OEnologique de Champagne from the best strains of the great Champagne vineyards.Excellent adaptation to the most difficult liquors: low pH, low temperature, high alcohol content.Rapidly established, complete breakdown of sugars and low nutrient requirements.It is ideally suited to making wines by the traditional method and closed-tank method.

LEVURE IOC B 2000

Freshness and aromatic intensity
The IOC B 2000 strain facilitates the aromatic fruity expression of white and rosé musts. It is suitable for making fresh, aromatic wines. It is used to obtain different aromatic profiles depending on the fermentation temperature and so combine fermentation and varietal notes harmoniously.IOC B 2000 is used or vinification of white wines on which aromatic expression is essential. It is all the more interesting on grape varieties poor in varietal precursors, but also rosés from syrah, grenache, merlot and cabernet.On rosé wines, IOC B 2000 expresses exotic fruit and citrus aromas.

LEVURE IOC B 3000

Yellow fruits, flowers and full-bodiedness
It brings out the intensity and aromatic complexity of wines, on yellow fruit and flower notes, while also contributing to the full-bodiedness and roundness.Its good fermentation capabilities make it an ally of choice for preventing the risks of sulphurous odours called ‘reduction’ appearing. Ideal elevage yeast, for making elegant, persistent and rounded wines.

LEVURE IOC BE FRESH

Controlling sulphite levels, freshness and roundness in concentrated red wines. A powerful tool in the winemaking process for ripe harvests and obtaining healthy, clear red wines that are fresh on the nose and on the palate, while keeping sulphites at their lowest level.

LEVURE IOC BE FRUITS

Mastering sulphite contents for wines rich in fruity esters
IOC BE FRUITS is the result of an innovative technology for selecting yeasts.
A genuine tool to reveal fruity esters (red fruits, pineapple, citrus notes) in white or rosé wines, moreover it can not produce any SO2. Furthermore, it allows to reduce The acetaldehyde formation which highly combine sulphites

LEVURE IOC BE THIOLS

The natural tool to obtain rich in thiols wines with low sulphite levels.
IOC BE THIOLS is the result of an innovative yeast-selection technology which truly brings out fruity thiols (in citrus and exotic fruits) in white or rosé wines without being able to form SO2. In addition, it helps reduce the formation of ethanal, a molecule which strongly compounds sulphites.

LEVURE IOC BIO

Organic Yeast
Certified-organic yeast that fulfils all the conditions demanded by European rules. It can be used very flexibly: killer factor, alcohol tolerance and adaptability to a wide range of fermentation temperatures.Product distributed by IOC only in France.

LEVURE IOC BY

For regular and complete fermentation of light white, rosé and red wines. This strain is very resistant to high alcohol contents. It performs a regular and complete fermentation without adding any particular aromatic
character to the wine.

LEVURE IOC DYNAMIX

A complex mixture of yeasts allowing the terroir and the grapes to express themselves to their full potential, in complete safety.

LEVURE IOC FIZZ

For the Closed-Tank method
The IOC FIZZ yeast has been selected for vinification of sparkling wines using the closed-tank method.Its ability to adapt to difficult liquors enables it to provide rapid and complete bubble formation.

LEVURE IOC FIZZ+

Aromatic yeast bringing out fruity notes for the Closed-Tank method
The IOC FIZZ+ yeast has been selected to meet the expectations of sparkling wine production using the Charmat method (closed-tank). It not only has very good fermentation characteristics for bubble-forming as in the first fermentation, but also contributes to the fruity intensity of these wines.

LEVURE IOC FRESH ROSÉ

Floral and varietal expression of rosé wines
The IOC FRESH ROSÉ strain is used to highlight an aromatic intensity on floral, citrus and spicy notes in rosé wines.The contribution to taste is also essential since it contributes to reducing aggressive sensations such as acidity, dryness and bitterness.IOC FRESH ROSÉ is particularly well suited to vinification of complex, rounded rosé wines, and particularly for varietal expression of grape varieties such as syrah and cabernet-sauvignon.

LEVURE IOC GAÏA

Natural, pre-fermentation protection for grape harvests and musts. Gaïa is a Metschnikowia fructicola yeast with no fermenting power, to combat the harmful flora. It fills an ecological niche by limiting deviations and the risk of triggering an excessively early alcoholic fermentation. GAÏA is a major tool for limiting pre-fermentation sulphiting.

LEVURE IOC HARMONIE

For fine, strong wines
It respects the aromatic characteristics of grape varieties and regions. In every case it produces very little volatile acidity. It is used to obtain white ans rosé wines with great finesse and red wines with very strong aromas.

LEVURE IOC INFINI’TWICE

The perfect balance between body and freshness in white wines, without limits.   The result of knowledge acquired by IOC on the behaviour of mixed yeasts, IOC INFINI’TwICE TM is a true synergy between IOC TwICETM and a yeast with strong fermentation capacities; this now makes it possible to extend the oenological conditions of use of this exceptional yeast.

LEVURE IOC PRIMROUGE R 9001

The standard for vinification of early red wines
The IOC PRIMROUGE R 9001 strain is used to obtain rounded, aromatic wines, marked by red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) and candy. The wines obtained are characterised by better colour, a clean nose, very fruity and a supple full-bodiedness. It is mainly suitable for making flattering, rounded wines, from gamay, merlot or syrah, and is ideally suited to liquidphase vinification of red musts.

LEVURE IOC R 9002

Spices, black fruits and woodiness
The IOC R 9002 strain is used to make structured, woody wines for laying down. It brings out aromas blending spices with black fruits. It improves colour fixing phenomena. It also shows good tolerance for high alcohol contents.

LEVURE IOC R 9008

Body, ripe fruits, salinity and longevity
The IOC R 9008 yeast has benn selected to develop complex ripe fruit aromas and full-bodiedness in structured red wines from concentrated fully-ripened grapes.

LEVURE IOC RÉVÉLATION TERROIR

Finesse, fruitiness and colour
IOC RÉVÉLATION TERROIR has been selected on pinot noir for its excellent ability to preserve colour. It increases the colouring intensity by 5% to 15% in comparison to numerous selected or indigenous yeasts.Its essential sensory contribution is to bring out varietal fruity aromas (raspberry, gooseberry, blackberry) of numerous red grape varieties, with a good balance between the freshness of the fruit and its maturity, on finesse and elegance.

LEVURE IOC RÉVÉLATION THIOLS

Full expression of fruity thiols
IOC RÉVÉLATION THIOLS offers a very good percentage conversion of precursors into varietal thiols and expresses superior aromatic potential to that given by most yeasts, on citrus and passion fruit notes, with limited plant notes.

LEVURE IOC TwICE

The perfect balance between volume in the mouth and a fresh finish with white wines
The IOC TwICE yeast has been chosen as the yeast best suited to the preparation of Chardonnay wines that are fresh, complex and balanced. The trials carried out revealed its suitability for highlighting fresh citrus aromas (especially lemon), peach, apricot and flowers.Remarkably, IOC TwICE brings an incomparable amplitude and roundness on the attack and mid-palate, followed by a fresh finish for the perfect balance.
