EXPLORING THE INFLUENCE OF S. CEREVISIAE MANNOPROTEINS ON WINE ASTRINGENCY AND THE IMPACT OF THEIR POLYSACCHARIDE STRUCTURE

Abstract

Mannoproteins (MPs) are proteoglycans from the outmost layer of yeast cell walls released into wine during alcoholic fermentation and ageing on lees processes. The use of commercial preparations of mannoproteins as additives to improve wine stability with regards to the crystallization of tartaric salts and to prevent protein haze in the case of white and rosé wines is authorized by the OIV.

Regarding red wines and polyphenols, mannoproteins are described as able to improve their colloidal stability and modulate the astringent effect of condensed tannins. The latter interact with salivary proteins forming insoluble aggregates that cause a loss of lubrication in the mouth and promote a drying and puckering sensation. However, neither the interaction mechanisms involved in mannoproteins capacity to impact astringency nor the structure-function relationships related to this property are fully understood.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of high molecular weight mannoproteins on tannin-protein interactions. To this end, experiments were performed in a model wine using tannins purified from a red Syrah wine and BSA. Tannin-BSA aggregation kinetics were followed for 1 hour through Dynamic Light Scattering measurements in the absence and presence of mannoproteins. To progress in the identification of structure-function relationships and on the part played by the polysaccharide part, mannoproteins fractions from four yeast strains were extracted and purified. Yeast Strains were selected according to their origin and specific mannoprotein polysaccharide structure: a commercial enological strain (MP-LMD47), the wild-type BY4742 strain (MP-WT), and two of its mutants ΔMnn4 (MP-Mnn4, no mannosyl-phosphorylation) and ΔMnn2 (MP-Mnn2, linear N-glycosylation backbone). A thorough characterization of mannoprotein fractions confirmed the structural differences between mannoproteins from each yeast strain.

MPs were capable of delaying tannin-BSA aggregation kinetics by preventing the formation of micron-sized particles within the hour of measurement but did not avoid the long-term precipitation of tannin-BSA aggregates. Experiments indicated that mannoproteins interfere with tannin-BSA enlarged aggregation through the formation of a ternary MP-Tannin-BSA system. To be able to prevent tannin-BSA particle growth, the density/compactness of the polysaccharide moiety of MPs was a key factor.

WINE CONSUMER TRADE-OFF BETWEEN ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS AND SUSTAINABLE CLAIMS. AN EXPERIMENT ON RED WINES FROM BORDEAUX REGION

In economics, the perception of wine quality is not limited to sensorial characteristics: an indication of the region of production significantly affects the perception of quality and consumers’ WTP ([1]; [2]). However, [3] or more recently [4] show that even if a wine has an organic label, the taste of wine remains the predominant criterion in consumer preferences. The contribution of our experiment is to evaluate the impact of responsible attributes (organic label, Non Added Sulfites, HVE certification) on the appreciation of several red wines on the market. More than 280 consumers participated to the present study and they perform 25 tastings divided into 5 different sessions. 20 different red wines from Bordeaux Area are tasted.

METHYL SALICYLATE, A COMPOUND INVOLVED IN BORDEAUX RED WINES PRODUCED WITHOUT SULFITES ADDITION

Sulfur dioxide (SO₂) is the most commonly used additive during winemaking to protect wine from oxidation and from microorganisms. Thus, since the 18th century, SO₂ was almost systematically present in wines. Recently, wines produced without any addition of SO₂ during all the winemaking process including bottling became more and more popular for consumers. A recent study dedicated to sensory characterization of Bordeaux red wines produced without added SO₂, revealed that such wines were perceived differently from similar wines produced with using SO₂ and were characterized by specific fruity aromas and coolness1,2.

HOLISTIC APPROXIMATION OF THE INFLUENCE OF SACCHAROMYCES STRAINS ON WINE AROMA PRECURSORS

Wine varietal aroma is the result of a mixture of compounds formed or liberated from specific grape-aroma precursors. Their liberation/formation from their specific precursors can occur spontaneously by acid catalyzed rearrangements or hydrolysis or by the action of the yeast enzymatic activities. The influence of yeast during fermentation on the production of these volatile compounds has been widely studied however, the effect of this influence during aging is not fully understood. In order to evaluate these processes several indirect strategies have been used to study aroma precursors although they are not useful to understand the chemistry of the process.

MONOSACCHARIDE COMPOSITION AND POLYSACCHARIDE FAMILIES OF LYOPHILISED EXTRACTS OBTAINED FROM POMACES OF DIFFERENT WHITE GRAPE VARIETIES

The recovery of bioactive compounds from grape and wine by-products is currently an important and necessary objective for sustainability. Grape pomace is one of the main by-products and is a rich source of some bioactive compounds such as polyphenols, polysaccharides, fatty acids, minerals and seed oil. Polysaccharides contained in the grape cell wall can be rhamnogalacturonans type II (RG-II), polysaccharides rich in arabinose and galactose (PRAG), mannoproteins (MP), homogalacturonans (HG) and non pectic polysaccharides (NPP).
