Abstract

Brettanomyces bruxellensis, a yeast responsible for the production of undesirable aromatic compounds (volatile phenols), is a permanent threat to wine quality. Today, different means are implemented to fight against B. bruxellensis, but are not always sufficient. The chitosan of fungal origin is introduced as a new tool to control B. bruxellensis in winemaking and has poorly been studied before for this application.
