Variabilité spatiale du gel printanier dans le vignoble champenois : application au zonage climatique

Abstract

Dans le vignoble de Champagne, les gelées de printemps sont à l’origine de variations importantes du volume de récolte qui sont très pénalisantes pour le commerce. Cette variabilité se traduit à la fois dans le temps (années sans gelée alternant avec des années avec de fortes gelées) et dans l’espace. Certains secteurs du vignoble sont en effet statistiquement plus gélifs que d’autres, mais, chaque année, aucune commune ne peut se considérer à l’abri de cet accident climatique. L’objectif de l’étude est précisément d’analyser la répartition spatiale du gel et d’en déterminer les principaux mécanismes, liés à la topographie des coteaux, leur orientation mais aussi aux variables météorologiques régionales.

Chemical and biochemical formation of polysulfides in synthetic and real wines using UHPLC-HRMS

ulfur compounds in wine have been studied for several years due to their impact on wine flavour, but the role of polysulfides is a recent topic. Polysulfides in wine are formed when two sulfhydryl groups oxidize, especially in presence of elemental sulfur or metal catalysts from field treatment residues (Ugliano et al. 2011). These compounds are odourless, but can degrade during storage and affect the wine quality. The mechanism of their formation is still largely unknown but different chemical and biochemical pathways have been suggested. Disulfides from cysteine (Cys) and glutathione (GSH) have been revealed in model wines (Kreitman et al. 2016) and more recently also higher polymerized forms in real wines (Van Leeuwen et al. 2020). Volatile varietal thiols like 3-mercaptohexanol (3MH) and 4-mercaptopentanone (4MMP) – flavour compounds with tropical or fruity notes – could undergo similar reactions, also with Cys and GSH, subsequently losing their flavour property (fate). Even more concerning is the possible release of H2S from polysulfides during storage, leading to undesired off-flavours (Sarrazin et al. 2010).

Chemical composition of cool-climate Sauvignon blanc grape skins clones during ripening

Sauvignon blanc is the most important variety in cool valleys in central Chile accounting 15,522 ha which corresponds to 42.4% of the cultivated surface with white varieties in Chile

Pure wine vs natural wine

S’il n’existe pas de réglementation officielle, la démarche des vins naturels prône un retour aux pratiques dites ancestrales préconisant notamment un mode d’élaboration des vins utilisant le moins d’intrants possible. Le seul autorisé reste l’anhydride sulfureux (SO2) à des doses quatre à cinq fois moins importantes que pour les vins dits conventionnels. Ce désir de renouer avec

Temperature variability inside a wine production area and its effect on vine phenology and grape ripening. An example from the Saint-Emilion-Pomerol

AIM: the aim of this study was to develop a method for fine-scale temperature zoning. The effect of temperature variability on vine phenology and grape composition was assessed in the production area of Saint-Emilion

Effects of the biodynamic preparations 500 and 501 on vine and berry physiology, pedology and the soil microbiome

In the pursuit of increasing sustainability, climate change resiliency and independence of synthetic pesticides in agriculture, the interest of consumers and producers in organic and biodynamic farming is steadily increasing. This is in particular the case for the vitivinicultural industry in Europe, where more and more producers are converting from organic to biodynamic farming. However, clear scientific evidence showing that biodynamic farming improves vine physiology, vine stress resilience, berry or wine quality, or is more sustainable for the environment is still lacking although this issue has been addressed by several research teams worldwide.
