Identification of 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal, a gamma nonalactone precursor in must and wine from Bordeaux cultivars

Abstract

Various molecular compounds are responsible for the complex mixture of fragrances that give wine its aroma. In particular, the ‘cooked fruit’ aroma found in red wines from hot and/or dry vintages or from the vinification of late harvested grapes has been intensively investigated in recent years. Lactones and especially γ-nonalactone were found to be responsible for the ‘cooked fruit’ aroma and are able to modulate its intensity. 1,2 This project aimed to study γ-nonalactone formation in order to better predict the intensity of the ‘cooked fruit’ character of wines in relation to the grape maturity. Thanks to our previous work, one precursor of γ-nonalactone has already been identified and quantified in must and wine: the 4-oxononanoic acid. 3 This work is devoted to study alternative γ-nonalactone formation pathways, especially from the products of C18 unsaturated fatty acid peroxidation. 4 That why 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal was suggested as a potential γ-nonalactone precursor. For its quantification in must and wine, the SPE-GC-MS analysis was developed, validated and applied to assaying this compound in must and wine from Bordeaux area. Then, the strereoselective biotransformation of 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal into R/S-γ-nonalactone was investigated. Finally, the impact of grape ripening and over-ripening phenomena on 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal content in must was studied.

In conclusion, our results demonstrated the presence of 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal in musts and wines and its biotransformation to γ-nonalactone during alcoholic fermentation of red grape varieties. The role of 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal as a precursor of the odorous γ-nonalactone in wine is revealed for the first time.

EFFECT OF DIFFERENT VITICULTURAL AND ENOLOGICAL PRACTICES ON THE PHENOLIC COMPOSITION OF RED WINES

Global climate change is exerting a notable influence on viticulture sector and grape composition. The increase in temperature and the changes in rainfall pattern are causing a gap between phenolic and technological grape maturities [1]. As a result, the composition of grapes at harvest time and, consequently, that of wines are being affected, especially with regards to phenolic composition. Hence, wine quality is decreasing due to changes in the organoleptic properties, such as color and astringency, making necessary to implement new adaptive technologies in wineries to modulate these properties in order to improve wine quality.

Evaluation of wood starch content on bench grafting success rate in grapevine

Since the emergence of phylloxera, grafting has been the most used propagation method in viticulture. Despite all the improvement measures implemented in the nurseries, it is frequent that graft success rates vary depending on the nursery process and scion/rootstock combinations. The reasons behind this unsatisfactory behaviour are still unknown and can be diverse, although carbohydrate reserves might be hypothesised to be crucial, since callus, root, and new tissue formation will be built based on them. In order to identify the effect of carbohydrates on grafting success, nine combinations were established based on the starch content in grapevine scionwoods (cv. Tempranillo clone VN69) and rootstocks cuttings (110 Richter clone 237) used for grafting: Low (L), Medium (M), High (H).

Climatic groups in Ibero-America viticulture compared to worldwide wine producer regions

Oak wood influence on the organoleptic perception of red wine

Some wood substances such as ellagitannins (vescalagin, castalagin, grandinin, roburins (A, B, C, D, E)…) can be extracted during wine ageing in oak barrels. The level of these hydrolysable tannins in wine depends of the species and origin of oak wood as well as its treatment during barrel realization.
