FLAVANOL COMPOSITION OF VARIETAL AND BLEND WINES MADE BEFORE AND AFTER FERMENTATION FROM SYRAH, MARSELAN AND TANNAT

Abstract

Background: The Flavan-3-ol extraction from grape skin and seed during red-winemaking and their retention into wines depend on many factors, some of which are modified in the winemaking of blend wines. Recent research shows that Marselan, have grapes with high proportion of skins with high concentrations of flavanols, but produces red-wines with low proportion of skin derived flavanols, differently to the observed in Syrah or Tannat. But the factors explaining these differences are not yet understood. Thus, the aim of this work was to evaluate if factors cited to affect tannin extraction and solubility, like solid to liquid ratio, anthocyanin concentration, seed to skin proportion, are behind the differences found in the flavanol composition of Syrah, Marselan and Tannat wines. Material and Methods: Over two vintages, 2019 and 2020, wines were made by the blending of grape-must before-fermentation (BFB) or of wines, after-fermentation (AFB), in proportion of 1/2-1/2 of Tannat-Marselan, Tannat-Syrah, Syrah-Marselan, and 1/3-1/3-1/3 of Tannat-Syrah-Marselan. The varietal wines (VW) were elaborated as well. All treatments were vinified by triplicate at experimental scale. Grape samples were taken before each winemaking. Macerations along 8 days were made in all cases. Spectrophotometric analysis were performed together with HPLC-ESI-Q-ToF determinations of flavan-3-ols. The wine to skin prodelphinidins quotient was used to estimate skin contribution to the wine flavanols. Results: In all cases, the flavanol structural composition of the grapes and of the varietal wines corresponded to the one expected for cultivar it belongs to. Thus, the results confirmed that under traditional red-winemaking, the flavanol composition of Syrah and Tannat wines mainly depends on the Skins while in Marselan mainly on seeds. The blend wines had a flavanol content and structural composition that closely matched the one that could be expected considering the composition of the varietal wines and the proportion of each cultivar in the blend. Therefore, there was also no significant effect of the time of blend (BFB vs AFB) on the flavanol concentration or composition of the wines. Conclusion: None of the factors that were modified in the winemaking of blend wines were behind the differences observed in the flavanol composition of the varietal wines of Syrah, Marselan and Tannat. Ongoing studies in Marselan may help to better understand the flavanol composition of wines.

IMPACT OF MINERAL AND ORGANIC NITROGEN ADDITION ON ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION WITH S. CEREVISIAE

During alcoholic fermentation, nitrogen is one of essential nutrient for yeast as it plays a key role in sugar transport and biosynthesis of and wine aromatic compounds (thiols, esters, higher alcohols). The main issue of a lack in yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN) in winemaking is sluggish or stuck fermentations promoting the growth of alteration species and leads to economic losses. Currently, grape musts are often characterized by low YAN concentration and an increase of sugars concentration due to global warming, making alcoholic fermentations even more difficult. YAN depletion can be corrected by addition of inorganic (ammonia) or organic (yeast derivatives products) nitrogen during alcoholic fermentation.

INFLUENCE OF CHITOSAN, ABSCISIC ACID AND BENZOTHIADIAZOLE TREATMENTS ON SAVVATIANO (VITIS VINIFERA L.) WINES VOLATILE COMPOSITION PROFILE

In the last decades the use of bioestimulants in viticulture have been promoted as alternative to conven- tional pesticides. Moreover, as bioestimulants promote the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites in grape berries, several studies had investigated their influence on the accumulation of phenolic com- pounds (Monteiro et al., 2022). However, few studies, so far, are focused on the accumulation of the vo- latile compounds and their impact on the produced wines (Giménez-Bañón et al., 2022; Gomez- Plaza et al., 2012; Ruiz Garcia et al., 2014).
This study was conducted in a single vineyard of white autochthonous grapevine variety Savvatia- no (Vitis vinifera L.) in Muses Valley (Askri, Viotia, Greece). Chitosan (CHT), Abscisic Acid (ABA) and Benzothiadiazole (BTH) were applied.

Influence of agrophotovoltaic on vine and must in a cool climate

The current energy crisis means that interest in agrophotovoltaics has increased significantly. The reason behind this is that the system aims to combine agricultural production with energy production. During the three-year period from 2020 to 2022, the effects of photovoltaic panels on the vine, the yield and the quality of the must were studied in Walenstadt in northern Switzerland, an area with a cool, humid climate. 65 Pinot noir vines were planted in the 160m2 study area. Because of the large edge effects, only 3 repetitions with 4 vines each could be created. A significantly lower leaf infestation by Plasmopara viticola was observed among the panels in each of the three years.

FUNGAL DIVERSITY AND DYNAMICS IN CHAMPAGNE VINEYARDS: FROM VINE TO WINE

Champagne is a well-known wine region in Northern France with distinct terroirs and three main grape varieties. As for any vineyard, wine quality is highly linked to the microbiological characteristics of the raw materials. However, Champagne grape microbiota, especially its fungal component, has yet to be fully characterized. Our study focused on describing this mycobiota, from vine to small scale model wine, for the two main Champagne grape varieties, Pinot Noir and Meunier, using complementary cultural and omics approaches.

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

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 involved 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.
