Caractérisation des productions vitivinicoles des terroirs du Barolo (Piemonte, Italie)


Le projet “Caractérisation des productions vitivinicoles du Barolo” est né par la volonté de la Région Piémont de créer une équipe multidisciplinaire de recherche pour l’individuation des différences du vin Barolo en relation avec le terroir, dans la perspective d’arriver à l’identification de sous-zones à l’intérieur de la zone de production du Barolo A.O.C .. La description de la méthodologie utilisée se trouve dans les acts du symposium de Siena 1998. L’expérience fait partie du Programme de recherche Viticolture-Oenologie mis en oeuvre par le Ministère Politiques Agricoles et la Région Piémont.

Effects of the addition of yeast derived products during aging in chardonnay sparkling winemaking

From the beginning of the yeast autolysis process, several interesting intracellular and cell wall constituyents are released to the media providing different characteristics to the wine, being this process extensively studied in sparkling wines due to their important contribution to their properties (1-2). Yeast derived products (YDs) try to emulate the natural yeast autolysis compounds release enhancing the organoleptic characteristics of resulting wines (2-3). This study is a comprehensive evaluation of the impact of the addition of different YDs added to base wine on the chemical, physical and sensory characteristics of the resulting sparkling wines. METHODS: Chardonnay base wine was employed to carry out this study. Three experimental YDs were added at 5 and 10 g/hL to the tirage liqueur: a yeast autolysate (YA), a yeast protein extract (PE) and an inactivated dry yeast from Torulaspora delbrueckii, (TD), and two commercial specific inactivated dry yeast: OPTIMUM WHITE® (OW) and PURE-LONGEVITY®(PL). After second fermentation, measurements were carried out after 3, 6, 9 and 18 months of aging on lees. General enological parameters, proteins, polysaccharides (HPLC-DAD-RID), volatile compounds profile (GC-MS), foaming characteristics (Mosalux), and descriptive sensory analyses were carried out.

The wine country, between landscape and promoting tool. The example of Chinon and Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil vineyards (France)

When talking about wine, terroirs are never too far. The National Institute of Apellation d’Origine (INAO) defines it as a system inside of which interact a group of human factors, an agricultural production and a physical environment.

The use of microwaves during the maceration of Cabernet Sauvignon wines for improving their chromatic characteristics

The use of new technologies such as microwaves (MW) arose in recent years as an efficient alternative to reduce the use of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and as a method for improving wines in terms of color and aroma [1, 2]. MW (non-ionizing electromagnetic waves with frequencies between 300 MHz and 300 GHz) have been widely applied in the food industry in order to reduce processing time and favor food preservation.

Viticultural climate effect on the sensorial perception of wines. Methodological elements for a modelling at a world level

The objective of this study was to develop a methodology capable of modeling the effect of viticultural climate on wine sensory characteristics.

Soil fertility and confered vigour by rootstocks

The adaptation of rootstock to scion variety and soil determines largely the control of the vegetative growth for grapevine. Many experiments were performed in the vineyard to classify the rootstocks according to their soil adaptation and to their effect on vine vigour. So far there are no data describing the course of appearance of rootstock effects after plantation. Moreover the underlying mechanisms of conferred vigour remain largely unknown.
