NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE FATE OF MARKERS INVOLVED IN FRESH MUSHROOM OFF-FLAVOURS DURING ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION

Abstract

The fresh mushroom off-flavour (FMOff) has been appearing in wines since the 2000s. Some C8 compounds such as 1-octen-3-one, 1-octen-3-ol, 1-hydroxyoctan-3-one, 3-octanol and others are invol-ved in this specific off-flavour [1-3]. At the same time, glycosidic precursors of some FMOff compounds have been identified in musts contaminated by Crustomyces subabruptus [4], highlighting the role of aroma precursors in this specific taint. However, the fate of these volatile molecules and glycosidic fractions during fermentation is not well known. The aim of this work was to study the effects of alcoholic fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisae (Levuline CHP® strain) on FMOff glycosidic precursors and volatile compounds present in healthy and contaminated Pinot noir musts, using Crustomyces subabruptus as fungal infection. The volatile compounds of FMOff and the glycosidic fractions of the initial musts and the resulting wines were analysed by GC-MS. The analysis of glycosidic precursors revealed for the first time the presence of 1-hydroxyoctan-3-one glycosides only in the contaminated musts. In addition, the Levuline CHP® strain was able to release a 1-hydroxyoctan-3-one glycosidic fraction during alcoholic fermentation. For the volatile FMOff compounds, the effect of fermentation was both compound and matrix dependent. Indeed, both 1-octen-3-one and 3-octanone showed fluctuating evolution depending on the initial matrix. The 3-octanol was systematically produced during alcoholic fermentation whatever the initial matrix with concentrations reaching up to 0.35 µg/L and 0.58 µg/L under healthy and contaminated conditions respectively. Finally, 1-hydroxyoctan-3-one reached an identical threshold concentration (around 150 µg/L) whatever the type of matrix and regardless of its initial level. Interestingly, this compound plays a dual role as substrate and product for the yeast highlighting a potential metabolic node in the FMOff biogenesis.

UNCOVERING THE ROLE OF BERRY MATURITY STAGE AND GRAPE GENOTYPE ON WINE CHARACTERISTICS: INSIGHTS FROM CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND VOLATILE COMPOUNDS ANALYSIS

In a climate change context and aiming for sustainable, high-quality Bordeaux wine production, this project examines the impact of grape maturity levels in various cultivars chosen for their adaptability, genetic diversity, and potential to enhance wine quality. The study explores the effects on wine compo-sition and quality through sensory and molecular methods. We studied eight 14-year-old Vitis vinifera cv. grape varieties from the same area (VITADAPT plots 1 and 5): Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Castets, Cot, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Touriga Nacional.

UNRAVELLING THE ROLE OF LACTIC ACID BACTERIA ON SPARKLING WINE ELABORATION THROUGH METABOLOMICS APPROACH

Xinomavro is a red grape variety from Northern Greece (Protected Designation of Origin), known for the nice acidities, perfectly appropriate for sparkling wine production (Rosé and Blanc de Noir). The elabo- ration of sparkling wine requires technical as well as scientific skills. Although the impact of the yeast strains and their metabolites on the final product quality is well documented, the action of bacteria still remains unknown.
The present work focuses (i) on the population diversity of lactic acid bacteria isolated from sparkling wines and (ii) on the technological effect of the species during sparkling wine elaboration.

USE OF 13C CP/MAS NMR AND EPR SPECTROSCOPIC TECHNIQUES TO CHARACTERIZE MACROMOLECULAR CHANGES IN OAK WOOD(QUERCUS PETRAEA) DURING TOASTING

For coopers, toasting process is considered a crucial step in barrel production during which oak wood (Q. petraea) develops several aromatic nuances released to the wine during its maturation. Toasting consists of applying different degrees of heat to a barrel for a specific period. As the temperature increases, thermal degradation of oak wood structure produces a huge range of chemical compounds. Many studies have identified the main key aroma volatile compounds (whisky-lactone, furfural, eugenol, guaiacol, vanillin). However, detailed information on how the chemical structure of oak wood degrades with increasing toasting level is still lacking.

IMPACT OF ACIDIFICATION AT BOTTLING BY FUMARIC ACID ON RED WINE AFTER 2 YEARS

Global warming is responsible for a lack of organic acid in grape berries, leading to wines with higher pH and lower titrable acidity. The chemical, microbiological and organoleptic equilibriums are impacted by this change of organic acid concentration. It is common practice to acidify the wine in order to prevent these imbalances that can lead to wine defects and early spoilage. Tartaric acid (TA) is most commonly used by winemaker for wine acidification purposes. Fumaric acid (FA), which is authorized by the OIV in its member states for the inhibition of malolactic fermentation, could also be used as a potential acidification candidate since it has a better acidifying power than tartaric acid.

THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT TERROIRS ON AROMA COMPOUNDS OF ‘KALECIK KARASI’ WINES

Kalecik Karası is a domestic grape variety of Turkey, originating from Kalecik district, 80 km from Ankara. Although there is no definite evidence, it is known that it was used in wine production by many civilizations that lived in the Anatolian region, especially the Hittites. Compared to other black wine grapes, it stands out with its low tannin content, rich fruity aroma and complex structure. In good vintages, red fruits such as strawberries, cherries and raspberries stand out in the aroma profile. Although its structure is elegant, it has the potential to age and develop similar to the ‘Pinot Noir’ wine of the Burgundy region. This offers a complex aroma structure including red flowers, earth and ripe fruits.
