NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE EFFECT OF TORULASPORA DELBRUECKII/SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE INOCULATION STRATEGY ON MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION PERFORMANCE

Abstract

Winemaking is influenced by micro-organisms, which are largely responsible for the quality of the product. In this context, Non-Saccharomyces and Saccharomyces species are of great importance not only because it influences the development of alcoholic fermentation (AF) but also on the achievement of malolactic fermentation (MLF). Among these yeasts, Torulaspora delbrueckii allows in sequential inoculation with strains of S. cerevisiae shorter MLF realizations [5] . Little information is available on the temporal effect of the presence of T. delbrueckii on (i) the evolution of AF and (ii) the MLF performance. Therefore, the objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of sequential time (2, 4 and 6 days) of T. delbrueckii/ S. cerevisiae on the achievement of MLF by two strains of Oenococcus oeni. AF and the following MLF were performed in a synthetic must supplemented with linoleic acid and b-sitosterol. The results showed that differences were observed in the duration of the AF as for example co-inoculated AF lasted less time, even compared to the control, while sequential AF were prolonged in time. Regarding the abundance of the species in co-inoculation S. cerevisiae dominated the fermentation process from the middle to the end as previously described in literature [2,3] . In sequential fermentations, T. delbrueckii represented a higher percentage at the end, 40-30% of the total population. In relation to the differences between sequential conditions it seems that during the fermentation with 4 days of T. delbruekii contact the population was higher than 2 and 6 days. As for the supplementation with lipids to the synthetic must we could observe that yeast viability increased, acetic acid decreased and AF and MLF performance improved. Regarding MLF T. delbrueckii improved the total time of the process comparing with S. cerevisiae as described in literature [1,4] . However, in the co-inoculated wines MLF had a longer duration. Regarding sequential wines, in the 4-day contact condition with T. delbruekii the MLF was shortened to two days, with the two O. oeni strains, so this seemed to be the best strategy combination.

Overall, these findings highlight the importance of considering both the inoculation strategy and the specific strains used to a better understanding of the complex interactions between these species in the fermentation process.

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT FOR VINEYARD WASTEWATER: A PROMISING NEW PROCESS OF DEGRADATION FOR PESTICIDES

The use of pesticides for vine growing is responsible for generating an important volume of wastewater. In 2009, 13 processes were authorized for wastewater treatment but they are expensive and the toxicological impact of the secondary metabolites that are formed is not clearly established. Recently photodecomposition processes have been studied and proved an effectiveness to degrade pesticides and to modify their structures (Maheswari et al., 2010, Lassale et al., 2014). In this field, Pulsed Light (PL) seems to be an interesting and efficient process (Baranda et al., 2017). Therefore, the aim of this work was to investigate the PL technology as a new process for the degradation of pesticides.

EVIDENCE OF THE INTERACTION OF ULTRASOUND AND ASPERGILLOPEPSINS I ON UNSTABLE GRAPE PROTEINS

Most of the effects of ultrasound (US) result from the collapse of bubbles due to cavitation. The shockwave produced is associated with shear forces, along with high localised temperatures and pressures. However, the high-speed stream, radical species formation, and heat generated during sonication may also affect the stability of some enzymes and proteins, depending on their chemical structure. Recently, Ce-lotti et al. (2021) reported the effects of US on protein stability in wines. To investigate this further, the effect of temperature (40°C and 70°C; 60s), sonication (20 kHz and 100 % amplitude, for 20s and 60s, leading to the same temperatures as above, respectively), in combination with Aspergillopepsins I (AP-I) supplementation (100 μg/L), was studied on unstable protein concentration (TLPs and chitinases) using HPLC with an UV–Vis detector in a TLPs-supplemented model system and in an unstable white wine.

EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT PRUNING TYPES ON CHARENTE UGNI BLANC GRAPE AND WINE QUALITY

Since the use of sodium arsenite was banned in 2001, Grapevine Trunk Diseases (GTDs) have become even more widespread increasing (1).To avoid pathogen entry, pruning, an age-old practice, is increa- singly coming to the fore. As the vine is a liana (2), any excessive woody proliferation has to be stopped. This can preserve grapevine life, provided it does not damage the diaphragm.

IMPACT OF CLIMATIC CONDITIONS ON THE SEASONING QUALITY OF OAK WOOD FOR OENOLOGICAL USE (QUERCUS PETRAEA)

For coopers, seasoning and toasting are considered crucial steps in barrel making during which the oak wood develops specific organoleptic properties. Seasoning, carried out in the open air, allows reducing the moisture content of the staves to between 14 and 18% (compared to 70 to 90% after splitting) while modulating the intrinsic composition of the oak wood. Toasting consists of applying different degrees of heat to a barrel for a specific period of time. As the temperature increases, oak wood produces a wide range of chemical compounds through thermal degradation of its intrinsic composition.

BIOPROTECTION BY ADDING NON-SACCHAROMYCES YEASTS : ADVANCED RESEARCH ON THIS PROMISING ALTERNATIVE TO SO₂

Sulphur dioxide has been used for many years for its antimicrobial, antioxidant and antioxydasic properties in winemaking but nowadays, it is a source of controversy. Indeed, consumers are more attentive to the naturalness of their foods and beverages and the legislation is changing to reduce the total SO₂ levels allowed in wines. To limit and replace the doses of sulphur dioxide applied, winemakers can now use bioprotection consisting in live yeast addition as alternative,seems to be promising. This process, lightly used in from the food industry, allows to colonize the environment and limit the development or even eliminate undesirable microorganisms without altering the sensory properties of the product.
