Les sols du cru de Bonnezeaux, Thouarcé, Anjou, France


Le cru de Bonnezeaux est une des appellations prestigieuses des vins liquoreux et moelleux des Coteaux du Layon et sa réputation est ancienne. L’INAO a effectué sa délimitation en 1953. Le vignoble est situé au nord de la ville de Thouarcé et au sud du village de Bonnezeaux, le long du versant rive droite du Layon, exposé au sud-ouest. La superficie du vignoble est de 156 ha. L’objectif de ce travail était d’une part de vérifier, sur un cru de grande typicité, les conditions géo-pédologiques, en particulier les différents types de sols, leur répartition spatiale et leur hétérogénéité, et d’autre part de comparer les sols du cru avec ceux de la zone adjacente. Une cartographie détaillée des sols a été effectuée. La superficie couverte par l’étude est de 380 ha.

Mapping terroirs at the reconnaissance level, by matching soil, geology, morphology, land cover and climate databases with viticultural and oenological results from experimental vineyards

This work was aimed at setting up a methodology to define and map the «Unités Terroir de Reconnaissance» (UTR), combining environmental information stored in a Soil Information System with experimental data coming from benchmark vineyards of Sangiovese vine.

Dalle zonazioni storiche alle “nuove forestazioni storiche produttive vitivinicole” per la valorizzazione delle cultivar e dei prodotti tipici ed originali dei Monti Iblei

Analisi sulle zonizzazioni storiche, sulle produzioni tipiche ed originali e sulla “forestazione classica” per impostare innovative zonazioni vitivinicole e dei prodotti tipici, originali attraverso la “Nuova forestazione storica produttiva”. Le recenti ricerche ed attività svolte sulle zonizzazioni storiche, sulle produzioni tipiche ed originali e sulla “forestazione classica” dei Monti Iblei (Ragusa) (I) hanno permesso di rilanciare le produzioni tipiche ed originali vitivinicole in un innovativo programma integrato tra zonazione (“Grande Zonazione”) e “Nuova forestazione storica produttiva” (“Grande Forestazione Produttiva”) di questo importante territorio.

Red wine extract and resveratrol from grapevines could counteract AMD by inhibiting angiogenesis promoted by VEGF pathway in human retinal cells

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) that is the main cause of visual impairment and blindness in Europe which is characterized by damages in the central part of the retina, the macula. This degenerative disease of the retina is mainly due to the molecular mechanism involving the production and secretion of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEF).

Untargeted LC-HRMS analysis to discover new taste-active compounds in spirits.

​For several years, the chemistry of taste has aroused high interest both from academics and industrials. Plant kingdom is a rich and reliable source of new taste-active compounds. Many sweet, bitter or sour molecules have been identified in various plants [1]. They belong to diverse chemical families and their sensory properties are strongly affected by slight structural modifications. As a consequence, the investigation of natural taste-active products in a given matrix appears as a major challenge for chemists. Such studies are particularly relevant in oenology since they allow a better understanding of wine and spirit taste.

Management of water status in vineyards: meta-analysis of its effects on yield and grape composition

Mediterranean vineyards have been traditionally grown under rainfed conditions, but in recent decades the irrigated area has increased significantly, seeking to minimize the adverse effects of severe water stress on grape quality and yield. Given the large area occupied by vineyards, and the increasing scarcity of water resources, it is necessary to develop strategies for the optimization and efficient use of water to reduce the risk of its overexploitation. The present study aims at valorizing previous knowledge generated in different research projects by means of a meta-analysis of the effects of water status management on vineyard performance.
