Colour analyses

Analysis of colour Groupe ICV

Colour is now one of the primary criteria when buying wine. Mastering colour is a particularly important step in responding to consumer expectations.

The Spectrophotometer for a detailed characterisation of rosé wines

The Spectrophotometer is used to obtain an objective measurement of colour as perceived by the human eye, and that as part of a standardised definition of colour.


This measurement is a breakthrough in the control of the final colour of the wines. It makes it possible to quantify objectives and adapt the technical itineraries in the cellar.

In practice, it's a quick analysis (results within the day) requiring a small sample.

The result: a colour adapted to the expectations of your customers.
