Territoires et zones viticoles. Aspects climatiques, pédologiques, agronomiques. Caractérisation des terroirs viticoles: une étude systémique

Abstract

On assiste actuellement à l’émergence d’une demande sociale forte à l’égard de fonctions par ailleurs traditionnelles de l’agriculture, qui concernent la gestion des ressources du milieu, le maintien d’un tissu social rural, la valorisation des territoires ruraux et l’entretien des paysages.
L’intérét suscité amène à préciser comment se pose aujourd’hui à la recherche, la question de la gestion des territoires ruraux. En effet, les impératifs de la production agricole, les phénomènes de déprise et les directives européennes et mondiales relatives à la protection de l’environnement, conduisent à analyser précisément le métier et la fonction d’agriculteur et du vigneron en l’occurrence.
Je pense que les conclusions d’un tel colloque feront non seulement émettre une réflexion, mais surtout apporteront des éléments de réponse, pour une prise en compte réelle de la gestion des territoires (ce qui nécessite bien entendu des méthodologies de délimitation ou de zonage).
La diversité des champs disciplinaires concernés, des méthodologies mises en oeuvre, des partenaires impliqués, montre bien l’ampleur et la complexité d’une réflexion à laquelle souhaitent s’associer les acteurs de développement local, les décideurs, les professionnels de l’agriculture, de la viticulture et des structures de transformation, mais aussi plus largement les consommateurs.
La qualité s’élabore tout au long d’un processus. Ceci sollicite des compétences variées en agronomie, en création variétale, en technologie … Une telle approche de la qualité des produits peut constituer un principe fédérateur puissant, dans un contexte où le pilotage de la consommation par l’aval en fait un élément déterminant de la compétitivité des filières et de leur diversification.

What are the optimal ranges and thresholds for berry solar radiation for flavonoid biosynthesis?

In wine grape production, canopy management practices are applied to control the source-sink balance and improve the cluster microclimate to enhance berry composition. The aim of this study was to identify the optimal ranges of berry solar radiation exposure (exposure) for upregulation of flavonoid biosynthesis and thresholds for their degradation, to evaluate how canopy management practices such as leaf removal, shoot thinning, and a combination of both affect the grapevine (Vitis vinifera L. cv. Cabernet Sauvignon) yield components, berry composition, and flavonoid profile under context of climate change. First experiment assessed changes in the grape flavonoid content driven by four degrees of exposure. In the second experiment, individual grape berries subjected to different exposures were collected from two cultivars (Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot). The third experiment consisted of an experiment with three canopy management treatments (i) LR (removal of 5 to 6 basal leaves), (ii) ST (thinned to 24 shoots per vine), and (iii) LRST (a combination of LR and ST) and an untreated control (UNT). Berry composition, flavonoid content and profiles, and 3-isobutyl 2-methoxypyrazine were monitored during berry ripening. Although increasing canopy porosity through canopy management practices can be helpful for other purposes, this may not be the case of flavonoid compounds when a certain proportion of kaempferol was achieved. Our results revealed different sensitivities to degradation within the flavonoid groups, flavonols being the only monitored group that was upregulated by solar radiation. Within different canopy management practices, the main effects were due to the ST. Under environmental conditions given in this trial, ST and LRST hastened fruit maturity; however, a clear improvement of the flavonoid compounds (i.e., greater anthocyanin) was not observed at harvest. Methoxypyrazine berry content decreased with canopy management practices studied. Although some berry traits were improved (i.e. 2.5° Brix increase in berry total soluble solids) due to canopy management practices (ST), this resulted in a four-fold increase in labor operations cost, two-fold decrease in yield with a 10-fold increase in anthocyanin production cost per hectare that should be assessed together as the climate continues to get hot.

The use of unripe frozen musts for modulating wine characteristics throughout acidity correction – effects on volatile and amino acid composition

As environmental issues come more to the fore, vineyards residues are being looked at as solutions rather than problems. Aiming to develop a sustainable methodology for musts acidity correction in the process of winemaking, much needed in warm regions, the present study was performed according to Circular Economy values.
