La Région Délimitée du Douro et le Vin de Porto — un terroir historique —

Abstract

La viticulture de la Région Délimitée du Douro, une des héritières de la viticulture ancestrale, traditionnellement empirique et de qualité, tout en intégrant la modernité et les outils contemporains, respecte et a toujours présent les principes sur lesquels elle s’est développé.

Commes les a très bien définit M.Champagnol :
1. La nécessité de réserver les meilleures terres pour les céréales destinés à la nourriture humaine ;
2. La production de moûts riches en sucre afin de contourner le problème de la mauvaise conservation des vins peu alcoolisés ;
3. Les petits récipients vinaires qui imposaient une vinification en petit volume, et qui ont permis d’établir des corrélations entre les parcelles et le vin,
sont quelques facteurs qui ont orienté cette viticulture vers un objectif de qualité.
Ce chemin de la qualité – qui conceme l’authenticité du vin et, Évidemment, la garantie donnée au consommateur, qui est le dernier juge de la qualité -, est un long chemin que l’on poursuit depuis presque 300 ans dans la Région Délimité du Douro.

Drought tolerance assessment and differentiation of grapevine cultivars using physiological metrics: insights from field studies

This study aimed to validate a protocol and compare metrics for evaluating drought tolerance in two Vitis vinifera grapevine cultivars under field conditions. Various metrics were calculated to represent the physiological responses of plants to progressive water deficit. Data were collected from Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay plants subjected to three irrigation levels during the 2022-2023 season, along with data from three previous seasons. Hydro-escape areas were used to assess the plant’s ability to reduce water potential with decreasing soil water availability.

Obtaining new varieties derived from Monastrell for the preparation of low alcoholic wines

The main challenge faced by viticulture is to improve the quality of the wines, adapting them to the new consumer demands that demand wines with lower alcohol content and greater freshness. In the last 30 years, a clear modification has been observed in the composition of the grape due to climate change

PERCEPTUAL INTERACTIONS PHENOMENA INVOLVING VARIOUS VOLATILE COMPOUND FAMILIES LINKED TO SOME FRUITY NOTES IN BORDEAUX RED WINES

Fruity notes play a key role in the consumer’s appreciation of Bordeaux red wines. If literature provides a lot of knowledge about the nature of volatile compounds involved in this fruity expression, the sensory phenomena involving these compounds in mixture still need to be explored. Considering previous sensory works about the impact of esters and some overripening compounds, the goal of this work was to study the implication of perceptual interactions involving red wine odorant compounds of diverse origins and described as potentially affecting fruity aromatic expression.
