La sémantique liée à la notion de terroir : une objectivité pluridisciplinaire

Abstract

Il n’est pas évident au premier abord de donner une définition exhaustive de la notion de terroir tant celle-ci peut être simplifiée ou compliquée à souhait. Ainsi le flou qui entoure ce concept laisse la porte ouverte à diverses interprétations du terroir. Celles-ci tendent vers un niveau d’objectivité critiquable car les champs qu’elles explorent ne suffisent pas à expliquer la notion à eux seuls, constituant seulement la partie d’un tout. Nous pensons qu’il est nécessaire, pour appréhender une définition du concept de terroir la plus exhaustive possible, d’envisager le terroir comme un ensemble d’éléments en interaction les uns avec les autres. Partant de cette hypothèse, un terroir serait donc une entité unique en son genre du fait de combinaisons différentes des éléments entre eux. Ainsi la probabilité d’obtenir deux terroirs de même type diminue rapidement lorsque le nombre d’éléments augmente – sachant que pour n éléments il y a n (n-1) combinaisons possibles.

Phenolic profiles of minor red grape cultivars autochthonous from the Spanish region of La Mancha

The phenolic profiles of little known red grape cultivars, namely Garnacho, Moribel and Tinto Fragoso, which are autochthonous from the Spanish region of La Mancha (ca. 600,000 ha of vineyards) have been studied over the consecutive seasons of years 2013 and 2014. The study was separately performed over the skins, the pulp and the seeds, and comprised the following phenolic types: anthocyanins, flavonols, hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives (HCADs), total proanthocyanidins (PAs) and their structural features. The selected grape cultivars belong to the Vine Germplasm Bank created in this region in order to preserve the great diversity of genotypes grown in La Mancha.

Trials with machine harvested sauvignon blanc: the importance of grape transport time and temperature

It is well known that free varietal thiols, in particular 3-mercaptohexanol (3MH) and 3-mercaptohexyl ace-tate (3MHA), are important constituents to the aroma of New Zealand Sauvignon blanc wines.

Effects of oak barrel aging monitored by 1H-NMR metabolomics

The study of wine evolution during barrel aging is an important aspect of wine quality. Our previous works have shown that wine metabolome monitoring by

1H-NMR approaches allows determining the impact of different winemaking processes including traitements using enzymes or finning agents [1].

Aromatic stability of Syrah and Petit Verdot tropical wines from Brazil

The production of fine wines in the Sub-middle of the São Francisco River Valley, Northeast of Brazil, is relatively recent, about twenty-five years ago. This region presents different characteristics

The colour pattern of flower arrangements influence wine tasters’ sensory description

The arrangements of flowers and wine counterparts are inextricably linked. Whether a fundamental aspect of tablescaping or acolytes to broader entertainment rituals, they have an entangled history since ancient times. The aim of this contribution is to verify the influence of visually delicate and robust flower arrangements on individual description of wines. Changes in the sensory description of wines were investigated during subjects’ (thirty-two participants) exposure to three different conditions: the presence of delicate, robust, or totally absent flower arrangements. In each condition, the same two wines were blind tasted: a wine previously defined as delicate – a Pinot Noir from Australia, and a wine known for its robust character – a Tannat from Uruguay.
