Changes in wine secondary metabolites composition by the timing of inoculation with lactic acid bacteria: impact on wine aroma


For the first time, it was established that the timing of inoculation with LAB could significantly impact the concentration of many secondary metabolites leading to significant aromatic changes. From studied compounds, the most influenced were esters and diacetyl. No trend was emphasized according to the methods of inoculation with LAB. The sensory analyses performed in this study displayed significant differences in the aromatic profiles according the way of inoculation with LAB.

Phenolic composition of Bordeaux grapes 2009 vintage: comparison with 2006, 2007 and 2008 vintages

‘Cabernet sauvignon’ and ‘Merlot’ are among the most recognized red wine grape cultivars. This work is aimed at investigating the proanthocyanidin composition of skins and seeds to determine the grape variety and the vintage effects on the phenolic composition of Bordeaux grapes.

Enological potential of autochtonous grape cultivars from Castilla y León (Spain) to elaborate sparkling wines: polyphenolic and biogenic amines and amino acid composition of base wines

In white wines, Verdejo wine stands out because of its high content in total amino acids. The total content in biogenic amines was low in all wines analyzed and putrescine was the predominant biogenic amine.

Influence of dipping pretreatments in drying of ‘Pedro Ximenez’ grapes in chamber at controlled temperature

The influence of dipping pretreatments on drying of ‘Pedro Ximenez’ grapes, destined to the elaboration of sweet wines, in chamber at controlled temperature, has been studied. Changes in color and phenolic composition of raisins produced were observed during the process of raisining.

Identification and quantification of c-glucosidic ellagitannins and their derivative in red wine aged in oak barrels

The C-glycosidic ellagitannins constitute a subclass of hydrolyzable tannins of remarkable structural diversity. In this work we first achieved the hemisynthesis of flavano-ellagitannins, then we used them to develop a new efficient detection and quantification procedure for the C-glycosidic ellagitannins as well as flavano-ellagitannins.

Protein stabilization of white wines by stabilizing filtration: pilot studies

Protein stabilization is an important part of the winemaking process of white wines, and in this work we present the results of protein stabilization of different monovarietal wines (Xarel.lo, Chardonnay, and Muscat) by a continuous stabilizing filtration process using a column packed with zirconium oxide operating in a continuous regime in a closed loop at pilot scale.
