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

Abstract

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 elaboration 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. Bacterial strains were typed by multiple loci VNTR analysis (MLVA) based on five tandem repeats loci and 3 different strains were chosen as starters for the sparkling wine production.

Xinomavro base wine was treated according to the winery production protocol and second fermentation was realised in the bottle under 6 different inoculation schemes.1) addition of S. cerevisiae (Lalvin DV10) 2) addition of S. cerevisiae (Lalvin DV10) and Lysozyme (40g/hL) 3) addition of S. cerevisiae (Lalvin DV10) and O. oeni Greek strain (UNIWA collection) 4) addition of S. cerevisiae (Lalvin DV10) and O. oeni French strain (CRBO collection) 5) addition of S. cerevisiae (Lalvin DV10) and O. oeni Commercial strain 6) addition of Schizo saccharomyces pombe strain (NRRL collection). Twelve months after the second fermentation in the bottle, oenological parameters were determined according to the OIV protocols, the volatile compounds produced were measured by GC/MS, and the metabolomic fingerprint analysis were acquired by an UPLC-HDMS-QTof-MS instrument. Finally, all produced wines were evaluated by quantitative descriptive sensorial analysis.

Malolactic fermentations were realized in all cases except the condition n°2 where lysozyme was added. Forty compounds were quantified and separated according to their chemical classes (monoterpenes, norisoprenoids, aldehydes, alcohols, esters, acids, and ketones) while statistical analysis showed the presence of three groups of sparkling wines according to the inoculation scheme. The untargeted metabolomic approach clearly discriminated the action of bacteria and revealed intra species variability at strain level. This is the first time that highlights the role of lactic acid bacteria and precisely of the species of O. oeni to sparkling wine elaboration.

HOW OXYGEN CONSUMPTION INFLUENCES RED WINES VOLTAMMETRIC PROFILE

Phenolic compounds play a central role in sensory characteristics of wine, such as colour, mouthfeel, flavour and determine its shelf life. Furthermore, the major non-enzymatic wine oxidation process is due to the catalytic oxidation of phenols in quinones. Due their importance, during the years have been developed different analytical methods to monitor the concentration of phenols in wine, such as Folin-Ciocalteu method, spectrophotometric techniques and HPLC. These methods can also be used to follow some oxidation-related chemical transformations.

EFFECT OF FUMARIC ACID ON SPONTANEOUS FERMENTATION IN GRAPE MUST

Malolactic fermentation (MLF)¹, the decarboxylation of L-malic acid into L-lactic acid, is performed by lactic acid bacteria (LAB). MLF has a deacidifying effect that may compromise freshness or microbiological stability in wines² and can be inhibited by fumaric acid [E297] (FA). In wine, can be added at a maximum allowable dose of 0.6 g/L³. Its inhibition with FA is being studied as an alternative strategy to minimize added doses of SO₂⁴. In addition, wine yeasts are capable of metabolizing and storing small amounts of FA and during alcoholic fermentation (AF).

HOW TO EVALUATE THE QUALITY OF NATURAL WINES?

The movement of Natural wines has clearly increased in the last few years, to reach a high demand from consumers nowadays. Switzerland has not been left out of this movement and has created a dedicated association in 2021. This association has the ambition to develop a specific tasting sheet for natural wines. The study of the tasting notes shows that the olfactory description of wines is recent but predominant today. But wine is a product makes to be drunk and not (just) to smell it. Based on these findings, a new 100-point tasting sheet has been developed. The main characteristics are 1) an evaluation in the mouth before the description of the olfaction, 2) to give 50% of the points on the judgment for the mouth characteristics, 3) to pejorate the visual aspects only if the wine is judged as “not drinkable” and 4) to express personal emotions.

UNRAVELING THE CHEMICAL MECHANISM OF MND FORMATION IN RED WINE DURING BOTTLE AGING : IDENTIFICATION OF A NEW GLUCOSYLATED HYDROXYKETONE PRO-PRECURSOR

During bottle aging, the development of wine aroma through low and gradual oxygen exposure is often positive in red wines, but can be unfavorable in many cases, resulting in a rapid loss of fresh, fruity flavors. Prematurely aged wines are marked by intense prune and fig aromatic nuances that dominate the desirable bouquet achieved through aging (Pons et al., 2013). This aromatic defect, in part, is caused by the presence of 3-methyl-2,4-nonanedione (MND). MND content was shown to be lower in nonoxidized red wines and higher in oxidized red wines, which systematically exceeds the odor detection threshold (62 ng/L).

INCREASING PINOT NOIR COLOUR DENSITY THROUGH SEQUENTIAL INOCULATION OF FLOCCULENT COMMERCIAL WINE YEAST SPECIES

Vitis vinifera L. cv. Pinot noir can be challenging to manage in the winery as its thin skins require careful handling to ensure sufficient extraction of wine colour to promote colour stability during ageing.1 Literature has shown that fermentation with flocculent yeasts can increase red wine colour density.2 As consumers prefer greater colour density in red wines,3 the development of tools to increase colour density would be useful for the wine industry. This research explored the impact of interspecies sequential inoculation and co-flocculation of commercial yeast on Pinot noir wine colour.
