Organic volatile compounds as suitable markers of grapevine response to defense elicitors in the vineyard

Abstract

In greenhouse, emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) by grapevine leaves has already been reported in response to the defence elicitor sulfated laminarin (PS3) [1]. In order to check that this response was not specific to PS3, experiments were conducted on Vitis cv Marselan plantlets with several other elicitors of different chemical structures: i.e. Bastid® (COS-OGA), chitosan, Redeli® (phosphonate), Romeo® (yeast extract) and Bion® (acibenzolar-S-methyl). Stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) was used as VOC sensor and volatiles compounds were analysed and identified by GC-MS. We confirmed that the observed increase in mono- and sesquiterpene emissions constitutes a common response of grapevine to elicitors in a time-dependent manner. Moreover, beta-ocimene and alpha-farnesene were systematically present within the emitted VOC “bouquet” [2]. Besides, stilbenes resveratrol and piceid were accumulated, but straight correlation with grapevine protection against downy mildew and those emissions terpenes and stilbenes could not be made. VOC emissions were then verified in two French vineyards in Burgundy and Bordeaux, respectively. VOC were analysed after Bastid® treatment of Vitis cvs Chardonnay and Cabernet franc at three phenological stages and using different collecting methods, i.e. passive or dynamic with either SBSE or Tenax sensors. As preliminary results, we observed that VOC emissions remain time-dependent and that terpenes, especially beta-ocimene, are also among the emitted volatiles. We found that the dynamic collect is more sensitive for VOC capture and is required in case of low level of emissions.
Overall these results suggest that VOC analysis could be a relevant method to further study vine response to defence elicitors in the vineyard.

Effect of oenological tannins on wine aroma before and after oxidation: a real-time study by coupling sensory (TDS) and chemical (PTR-ToF-MS) analyses

Polyphenols are important compounds involved in many chemical and sensory wine features. In winemaking, adding oenological tannins claims to have positive impacts on wine stability, protection from oxidation and aroma persistence. Polyphenols are antioxidant compounds by either scavenging reactive oxygen and nitrogen species or chelating Fe2+ ions (1). However, as tannins oxidation leads to the formation of highly reactive species (i.e. ortho-quinones), it is still unclear if they have an effective role toward oxidation of wine aromas (2). In this work, we aim at studying the effect of two commercial tannins (proanthocyanidins, ellagitannins) on red wine flavour (mainly aroma) before and after air exposition.

Impact of heating must before fermentation on Chardonnay wines

Prefermentation steps of white winemaking are very important for controlling the stability and the sensory attributes of wines. Usually musts are clarified by cold settling to prevent the start of the fermentation, before racking big lees and thus limiting the appearance of vegetable or reduction off flavour while favouring an aromatic expression with low turbidity. Besides, to reach the protein stability, some white wines further require a bentonite fining, sometimes associated with negative effects on the sensory quality. This study aims to know the impact of musts heating after pressing on a Chardonnay wine in northern conditions by comparison with a classic cold racking of the must.

Metabolomics of grape polyphenols as a consequence of post-harvest drying: on-plant dehydration vs warehouse withering

A method of suspect screening analysis to study grape metabolomics, was developed [1]. By performing ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) – high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) analysis of the grape extract, averaging 320-450 putative grape compounds are identified which include mainly polyphenols. Identification of metabolites is performed by a new HRMS-database of putative grape and wine compounds expressly constructed (GrapeMetabolomics) which currently includes around 1,100 entries.

Viticultural Climatic Zoning and Digital Mapping of Rio Grande do Sul – Brazil, using Indices of the Géoviticulture MCC System

The State Rio Grande do Sul is the main producer of Brazilian fine wines, with four viticultural regions. The objective is the characterization of the viticultural climatic potential of the State (total surface of 281.749 km2). The methodology use the Géoviticulture Multicriteria Climatic Classification System (Géoviticulture MCC System), based on three climatic indices – Dryness Index (DI), Heliotermal Index (HI) and Cool Night Index (CI).

The tolerance of grapevine rootstocks to water deficit is related to root morphology and xylem anatomy traits 

Climate change is altering water balances, thereby compromising water availability for crops. In grapevine, the strategic selection of genotypes more tolerant to soil water deficit can improve the resilience of the vineyard under this scenario. Previous studies demonstrated that root anatomical and morphological traits determine vine performance under water deficit conditions. Therefore, 13 ungrafted rootstock genotypes, 6 commercial (420 A, 41 B, Evex 13-5, Fercal, 140 Ru y 110 R), and 7 from new breeding programs (RG2, RG3, RG4, RG7, RG8, RG9 and RM2) were evaluated in pots during 2021 and 2022.
