Organoleptic and analytical impacts of the color of glass of the bottles on Chasselas wine

Abstract

This study was performed on Chasselas wine to assess the impact of exposure to wine light according to several glass color of bottles. The aim was to highlight any differences whether from an organoleptic or analytical point of view depending on the color. For this, four different shades were compared, dead leaf, green, cinnamon and transparent. A control, not treated with light, was also included in the study. Several tests were carried out with different exposure times in boxes as well as in stores. The bottles were exposed 7 days, 4 days as well as 2 days in box but also 7 days in store. At the end of each test the different modalities were tasted by an expert panel in order to observe any differences between the tint modalities. As a result of these experiments, it was observed that organoleptic differences significant appeared after 2 days of exposure, in particular on the olfactory notes of the reduction. The transparent modality was seen to be significantly more intense on reduction scores compared to other modalities, including the witness in particular. These differences were also observed during all the tests even that of 7 days of exposure in store where we would have thought that there would be no difference. Overall, the control and cinnamon modalities are generally perceived to have more intense notes on the fruity, floral descriptors but less intense for reduction than the transparent shade. For the dead leaf and green modalities, the results are more contrasted and sometimes approach those of the control and other times closer to the transparent modality. Regarding the analytical results, similar conclusions could be drawn with respect to the sensory tests. In fact, the transparent modality is the variant which has an absorbance of the UV-C solution that is twice as high as the other modalities after the 7-day treatment in the chamber. In view of the sensory and analytical results obtained in this study, the choice of the color of the bottles turns out to be an essential element in influencing the intrinsic and extrinsic characteristics of a wine. In order to preserve the qualities of the wine over the medium and long term, dark and opaque tints should be favored. Conversely, a transparent glass could be recommended in the case of rapid consumption of the wine after bottling.

Chitosan elicits mono-glucosylated stilbene production and release in fed-batch fermentation of grape cells 

In the present study, the optimal conditions of grape (Vitis vinifera cv ‘Barbera’) cell cultures in batch and fed-batch bioreactor processes were studied to specifically improve the production of mono-glucosylated stilbenes.

Crossed approaches to experimental economics and sensory analysis regarding noble rot sweet wines perception

Noble rot sweet wines are reputed wines, traditionally elaborated according to a singular vinification process involving the harvesting of overripe grapes under the action of the ascomycete fungus Botrytis cinerea.

Defoliation combined with exogenous ABA application results in slower ripening and improved anthocyanin profile

Reducing sugar accumulation in grape (Vitis vinifera L.) berries may be a way to mitigate the effect of climate change. Managing canopy and crop load is an effective way to do so, however, reducing canopy size has been demonstrated to induce undesirable effects on anthocyanins. The aim of this study was to test if an application of exogenous ABA on the grape berries of defoliated vines (⅔ of the leaves removed) can result in slower sugar accumulation while maintaining grape and wine quality. An experiment with defoliation and exogenous ABA application on directly on clusters (factorial design 2×2) was performed with ‘Tempranillo’ fruit-bearing cuttings.

Study of the sensory dimension of the wine typicality related to a terroir and crossing with their viticultural and oenological characteristics

The typicality of a product can be characterized by properties of similarity in relation to a type, but also by the properties of distinction.

Expanding the biotechnological potential of M. pulcherrima/fructicola clade for wine-related applications

AIM: Strains belonging to M. pulcherrima/fructicola clade are frequently isolated from flowers, fruits and grape musts, and exhibit a broad spectrum of enzymatic activities and antimicrobial potential (Morata et al., 2019; Sipiczki, 2020; Vicente et al. 2020).
