A NEW TOOL TO QUANTIFY COMPOUNDS POTENTIALLY INVOLVED IN THE FRUITY AROMA OF RED WINES. DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION TO THE STU-DY OF THE FRUITY CHARACTER OF RED WINES MADE FROM VARIOUS GRAPE VARIETIES

Abstract

A wide range of olfactory descriptors ranging from fresh and jammy fruit notes to cooked and oxidized fruit notes could describe the fruity aroma of red wines [1]. The fruity character of a wine is mainly related to the grape variety selected, to the terroir and the vinification process applied for its conception. In white wines, some volatile compounds confer directly their aroma to the wine while the question of “key” compound is more complex in red wines. According to many studies performed over the past decades, some fruity ethyl esters are directly involved in the fruity perception of red wines while others, present at subthreshold concentrations, participate indirectly to the fruity expression via perceptive interactions [2]. However, a few non-fruity aroma compounds not belonging to ester family are known to contribute to the fruity aroma in red wines. For example, β-damascenone and β-ionone (C13-norisoprenoids) boost the fruity notes via synergic effects while 1,8-cineole (a monoterpenoid) is involved in the blackcurrant aroma of particular red wines [3, 4]. This study intends to explore the fruitiness of red wines produced from different grape varieties. An analytical method was developed and optimized using liquid-liquid extraction and gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC/MS) to determine the concentrations of aroma compounds potentially involved in the fruity aroma of red wines. The aim of this method was to reduce sample preparation and analysis time, as this tool requires a single sample preparation and a single injection to quantify 43 aromatic compounds including 19 esters, 13 monoterpenes, 5 C13-norisoprenoids and 1 C6-aldehyde and 5 C6-alcohols. A total of 37 volatile compounds were detected and quantified in commercial single-va-rietal red wines from the 2018 vintage made from grape-varieties planted around the Mediterranean (Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Portugal and France). A generation of olfactory descriptors was coupled to instrumental analyses to investigate their fruity aromas. Samples were selected by experts according to their qualitative fruity aromas marked by “fresh red- and black-berry fruit” and “red- and black-berry jammy fruit” notes. Differences were observed regarding the variations in concentrations of several aroma compounds. Some variations are partially correlated to the olfactory descriptors cited by experts.

IMPACT OF ABIOTIC AND BIOTIC FACTORS ON BIOADHESION PROPERTIES OF BRETTANOMYCES BRUXELLENSIS

Brettanomyces bruxellensis is an ubiquitous yeast associated with different fermentation media such as beer and kombucha, where its presence is beneficial to bring an aromatic typicity. However, it is a main spoilage yeast in wines, in which it produces volatile phenols responsible for organoleptic deviations causing significant economic losses (Chatonnet et al., 1992). Cellar and winery equipment’s are considered as the first source of contamination, during fermentation and wine ageing process (Connel et al., 2002). Indeed, it is possible to find B. bruxellensis in the air, on walls and floors of the cellars, on small materials, vats and barrels.

OTA DEGRADATION BY BACTERIAL LACCASEST

Laccases from lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are described as multicopper oxidase enzymes with copper union sites. Among their applications, phenolic compounds’ oxidation and biogenic amines’ degradation, have been described. Besides, the role of LAB in the toxicity reduction of ochratoxin A (OTA) has been reported (Fuchs et al., 2008; Luz et al., 2018). Fungal laccases, but not bacterial laccases, have been screened for OTA and mycotoxins’ degradation (Loi et al., 2018). OTA is a mycotoxin produced by some fungal species, such as Penicillium and Aspergillus sp., which infect grape bunches used for winemaking.

Molecular approaches for understanding and modulating wine taste

Wine consumers generally demand wines having a perception of softer tannins and less ripe, having a heaviness and richness on palate (full-body wine) with a limpid and stable color. However, polyphenol
(tannins)-rich wines have been also correlated with unpleasant taste properties such as astringency and
bitterness when perceived at high intensities. Modulating these unpleasant properties could be important for consumer’s approval of wines.

TARTARIC STABILIZATION MAY AFFECT THE COLOR AND POLYPHENOLIC COMPOSITION OF TANNAT RED WINES FROM URUGUAY

Tartrate precipitation affects the properties of wines, due to the formation of crystals that cause turbidity, even after being bottled. The forced tartaric stabilization is carried out frequently for young wines, through various physicochemical procedures. The traditional treatment for tartaric stabilization is refrigeration, but it can have a negative effect on wine’s sensory properties, and particularly on the color of red wines. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different tartaric stabilization options on the color and phenolic composition of Tannat red wines from Uruguay.

WINE AS AN EMOTIONAL AND AESTHETIC OBJECT: IMPACT OF EXPERTISE

Wine tasting has been shown to provide emotions to tasters (Coste et al. 2018). How will expertise impact this emotional response? Burnham and Skilleås (2012) reported that the cultural, experiential, and aesthetic competencies characterize an expert in wine compared to a novice. Although there is no consensual definition of an aesthetic experience, Burnham and Skilleås (2012) reported that aesthetic appreciation is “disinterested, normative for others and communicable” in comparison to sensory pleasure.
