Elaboration des cartes conseils pour une gestion du terroir à l’échelle parcellaire: utilisation d’algorithmes bases sur des paramètres physiques du milieu naturel


The “Anjou Terroirs” programme aims at bringing the necessary scientific basis for a ratio­nal and reasoned exploitation of the technical itinerary of the terroir. The scale study is 1/12500. For the mapping, many parameters, such as the granulometry or the depth of soil are observed to each point of caracterisation. However, the composition and the quality of grapes do not depend directly on these parameters, but is influenced by variables such as water supply or vine precocity. These variables cannot be easily mapped, but can be esti­mated by algorithms based on expertise. The precision and the content of the cartographie study allow to quantify these main variables wich influence the vine behavior. It is therefore possible to build advisory maps that can be used by the vine growers at the scale of the par­cellary. As an example, a map on rootstock adaptation to the terroir has been published. Thanks to the knowledge obtained through a network of experimental plots, five fundamen­tal factors seems determinant to us, to choose a rootstock in Anjou condition: water sup­ply, natural drainage, iron chlorosis power of soil, vigour potential and precocity potential conferred by the terroir.

Climatic potential to produce grapes for wine-making in the tropical north region of Minas Gerais State, Brazil

The tropical north region of Minas Gerais State is one of the least developed of Brazil and viticulture could be an alternative to develop its agriculture zone. The objective of this work was to evaluate the wine grape production climatic potential of that region.

Chemical and colorimetric study of copigmentation between malvidin-3-O-glucoside and wine polyphenols and polysaccharides

The objective of this work was to perform a colorimetric study of the copigmentation between malvidin-3-O-glucoside, one of the main anthocyanins in red wines,

Measurement of redox potential as a new analytical winegrowing tool

Excell laboratory has initiated the development of an analytical method based on electrochemistry to evaluate the ability of wines to undergo or resist to oxidative phenomena. Electrochemistry is a powerful tool to probe reactions involving electron transfers and offers possibility of real-time measurements. In that context, the laboratory has implemented electrochemical analysis to assess oxidation state of different wine matrices but also in order to evaluate oxidative or reduced character of leaf and soil. Initially, our laboratory focused on dosage of compounds involved in responses of plant stresses and we were also interested in microbiological activity of soils. These analyses were compared with the measurement of redox potential (Eh) and pH which are two fundamental variables involved in the modulation of plant metabolism. Indeed, the variation of redox states of the plant reflects its biological activity but also its capacity to absorb nutriments. The Eh-pH conditions mainly determine metabolic processes involved in soil and leaf and our goal is to determine if this combined analytical approach will be sufficiently precise to detect biological evolutions (plant health, parasitic attack…).

A new path for sustainable development. First results in a Venetian “bio-métaéthique company“ (Italy)

This paper will show the results of changes in income in a Veneto winery located in the municipality of Motta di Livenza (Treviso) in the North East of Italy, determined by the application of the “Holistic Universal Sustainability Charter” Metaethic 4.1CC “or” Sustainability Charter BIO-MétaÉthique 4.1CC “of GiESCO (Carbonneau, Cargnello, 2017).

Projected impacts of climate change on viticulture over France wine-regions using downscalled CMIP6 multi-model data

Winegrape is a crop for which the quality and the identity of the final product depends strongly on the
climatic conditions of the year. By impacting production systems and the way in which wines are
developed, climate change represents a major challenge for the wine industry (Ollat et al., 2021).
