EXTRACTIBLE COMPOUNDS FROM MICROAGGLOMERATED CORK STOPPERS

Abstract

After bottling, the wine continues to evolve during storage. The choice of the stopper is an important factor in this evolution. In addition to the oxygen permeability of the closure, the migration of stopper compounds into the wine can also have an impact on the wine organoleptic properties. Many studies have shown that transfers of volatile compounds from the stoppers into the wine can happen depending on the type of closure used (1). Moreover, when cork-made stoppers are used, the migration of phenolic compounds from the stopper into the wine can also occur (2, 3). However, there are few studies on the migration of polyphenols from agglomerated corks treated with supercritical CO₂. Therefore, the present study aimed to quantify the polyphenols released by microagglomerated cork stoppers in hydroalcoholic solutions in comparison with those extracted from natural cork stoppers. Thus, extractions were performed on eight different batches of natural cork stoppers and eleven of microagglomerated cork stoppers treated with supercritical CO₂. For this, six stoppers from each batch were immersed in 400 mL of 12% ethanol solution at 40°C for 10 days. The nineteen macerates were then analyzed by HPLC-DAD-ESI-QQQ to identify and quantify the extracted polyphenols and suberic acid. The microagglomerated corks released significantly fewer polyphenols (i.e., 25 times less). Regarding suberic acid, no differences were observed between both types of cork stoppers. Then, according to the groups obtained by a hierarchical ascending classification based on polyphenol composition, the macerates were pooled in equal volumes to reconstitute four new macerates of natural and/or microagglomerated cork stoppers. These four samples were then submitted to a panel of thirteen judges to perform a sensory profile with olfacto-ry, taste, and mouthfeel descriptors. The results of this sensory profile showed that microagglomerated stoppers appeared to have the lowest overall impact on the olfactory and gustative perception of the hydroalcoholic solutions.

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.

CHARACTERIZATION OF THE AROMA PROFILE OF COMMERCIAL PROSECCO SPARKLING WINES

The typicality of a wine, as well as its aromatic identity, are attributes that are highly sought after and requested by the current market. It is therefore of considerable technological interest to investigate the aromatic aspects of specific wines and to identify the odorous substances involved.In this thesis work, the characterization of the aromatic composition of Prosecco wines available on the market with a price range between 7 and 13 euros was carried out. These wines came from three different areas of origin such as Valdobbiadene, Asolo and Treviso.

CHANGES IN CU FRACTIONS AND RIBOFLAVIN IN WHITE WINES DURING SHORT-TERM LIGHT EXPOSURE: IMPACTS OF OXYGEN AND BOTTLE COLOUR

Copper in white wine can be associated with Cu(II) organic acids (Cu fraction I), Cu(I) thiol species (Cu fraction II), and Cu sulfides (Cu fraction III). The first two fractions are associated with the repression of reductive aromas in white wine, but these fractions gradually decrease in concentration during the normal bottle aging of wine. Although exposure of white wine to fluorescent light is known to induce the accumulation of volatile sulfur compounds, causing light-struck aroma, the influence on the loss of protective Cu fractions is uncertain. Riboflavin is known to be a critical initiator of photochemical reac-tions in wine, but the rate of its decay under short-term light exposure in different coloured bottles and for wine of different oxygen concentrations is not well understood.

NEW PLANT BIOPOLYMERS FOR THE COLLOIDAL STABILITY OF THE COLORING MATTER OF RED WINES

The color as well as the “clarity” of red wines are ones of the qualities required by the consumers. Red wines must have colloidal stability from its bottling to its consumption. The supplementation of red wines with additives, and especially Acacia senegal gum, contributes to its organoleptic properties such as the colloidal stabilization of the coloring matter. In a global perspective of limitation of additives in the field of enology, one of the objectives is notably (i) to reduce the use of additives in wines, by their number and/or their quantity, and (ii) to favor the use of natural additives while preserving the organoleptic and sensory qualities of wines.

IDENTIFICATION AND LEVELS OF PHENOLIC COMPOUNDS (TANINS, ANTHO-CYANS) IN RED VARIETAL WINES (PROKUPAC AND BLACK TAMJANIKA) FROM SERBIA

The phenolic compounds of red wines represent a source of numerous benefits for human health, which is why they are a constant subject of scientific research. Winemaking in Serbia has a growing economic significance, with particularly autochthonous varieties included [1]. This research identifies and quantifies phenolic compounds of Serbian red varietal wines of Prokupac and Black Tamjanika varieties. Quantification of the level of phenolics has been conducted, including molecular tannins [(+)-catechin, (-)-epicatechin, procyanidin dimers B1, B2, B3, B4], molecular anthocyanins, and the mean degree of polymerization of tannins by HPLC by UV detection, total antioxidant capacity via spectrophotometric methods and chromatic characteristics via CIELAB.
