Recreate the effect of maturation on the lees in tanks

Working with the lees in vats will enhance the body and fullness of your wines while protecting their aromatic potential.

More body without any loss of aroma:

Constant movement increases the extraction of polysaccharides by 30% compared with a control tank without a mixer. The additional polysaccharides have an immediate and positive impact on the mouthfeel and aromatic persistence.
Bâtonneur™ assures gentle resuspension without loss of CO2, thereby preserving all of the wine's aromas.

Fine-tune a wine's profile via the interaction between oxygen and lees:

Steer your wines towards more body or structure by regulating the amount of oxygen in the lees.
The Visio™ range ensures reliable inputs. A small amount of oxygen in conjunction with the lees results in a rounder wine. A large amount of oxygen in conjunction with the lees results in a more structured wine.
