PERCEPTUAL INTERACTIONS PHENOMENA INVOLVING VARIOUS VOLATILE COMPOUND FAMILIES LINKED TO SOME FRUITY NOTES IN BORDEAUX RED WINES

Abstract

Fruity notes play a key role in the consumer’s appreciation of Bordeaux red wines. If literature provides a lot of knowledge about the nature of volatile compounds involved in this fruity expression, the sensory phenomena involving these compounds in mixture still need to be explored. Considering previous sensory works about the impact of esters and some overripening compounds, the goal of this work was to study the implication of perceptual interactions involving red wine odorant compounds of diverse origins and described as potentially affecting fruity aromatic expression.

Six wines with particular profiles have been selected for this study. All the considered volatile compounds were assayed and sensory analysis consisting of triangular tests were conducted on these six wines in which supplementations by aromatic families have been done to reach the minimal, mean, and maximal concentrations found in Bordeaux typical wines. These concentrations were determined thanks to quantification in 20 Bordeaux red wines selected for their typicity.

For impacting additions, sorting tasks have been performed to evaluate the level of similarity between samples and sensory profiles were established in order to explicit which character was modified with additions.

Our results showed that the addition as well as the level of supplementation of some compounds have a significant impact on wine aroma. Volatile compounds from different origins, depending on their concentration, influence the perception of wine being involved in perceptual interaction. Further studies must now be conducted to explain more specifically how they affects red wine fruity notes.

USE OF 13C CP/MAS NMR AND EPR SPECTROSCOPIC TECHNIQUES TO CHARACTERIZE MACROMOLECULAR CHANGES IN OAK WOOD(QUERCUS PETRAEA) DURING TOASTING

For coopers, toasting process is considered a crucial step in barrel production during which oak wood (Q. petraea) develops several aromatic nuances released to the wine during its maturation. Toasting consists of applying different degrees of heat to a barrel for a specific period. As the temperature increases, thermal degradation of oak wood structure produces a huge range of chemical compounds. Many studies have identified the main key aroma volatile compounds (whisky-lactone, furfural, eugenol, guaiacol, vanillin). However, detailed information on how the chemical structure of oak wood degrades with increasing toasting level is still lacking.

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.

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.

PROTEOMIC STUDY OF THE USE OF MANNOPROTEINS BY OENOCOCCUS OENI TO IMPROVE MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION

Malolactic fermentation (MLF) is a desired process to decrease acidity in wine. This fermentation, carried out mostly by Oenococcus oeni, is sometimes challenging due to the wine stress factors affecting this lactic acid bacterium. Wine is a harsh environment for microbial survival due to the presence of ethanol and the low pH, and with limited nutrients that compromise O. oeni development. This may result in slow or stuck fermentations. After the alcoholic fermentation the nutrients that remain in the medium, mainly released by yeast, can be used in a beneficial way by O. oeni during MLF.

EMERGENCE OF INORGANIC PHOSPHONATE RESIDUES IN GRAPEVINE PLANT PARTS, BERRIES AND WINES FROM SOURCES OTHER THAN FOLIAR SPRAYING

Inorganic phosphonates are known to effectively support the control of grapevine downy mildew in vi- ticulture. Their application helps the plant to induce an earlier and more effective pathogen defense. However, inorganic phosphonates have been banned in organic viticulture due to their classification as plant protection products since October 2013. Despite the ban, phosphonate has been recently detected in organic wines.
