Volatile composition of base wines to obtain sparkling wines from seven autochthonous grape varieties from Castilla y León (Spain)


The aim of this work was to characterize the aromatic profile of white and rosé base wines for the elaboration ofsparkling wines from seven autochthonous grape varieties of Castilla y León. The ‘Albarín’, ‘Godello’ and ‘Verdejo’white grape cultivars contribute with more fruity notes than the ‘Viura’ and ‘Malvasía’ cultivars; and ‘Prieto picudo’coloured grape cultivar has more fruity character than ‘Garnacha’.

Uvalino wine: chemical and sensory profile

The evaluation of different chemical compounds present in Uvalino wines was correlated with sensory analysis. The analysis showed a high content of polyphenolic compounds responsible for the organoleptic properties of wine, including color, astringency and bitterness.

Chemical systems behind wine aroma perception: overview, genesis and evolution

This talk presents a revision of our knowledge and understanding of the role played by the different aroma chemicals in the positive aroma attributes of wine. A systematic approach to classifying the different aroma chemicals of wine is presented .

Oak wood influence on the organoleptic perception of red wine

Some wood substances such as ellagitannins (vescalagin, castalagin, grandinin, roburins (A, B, C, D, E)…) can be extracted during wine ageing in oak barrels. The level of these hydrolysable tannins in wine depends of the species and origin of oak wood as well as its treatment during barrel realization.

Brettanomyces bruxellensis and off-odours: genetic and proteomic approaches to unravel the molecular mechanism of ethyl-phenols production

Brettanomyces/Dekkera yeasts in wine are able to produce various spoilage compounds that are, at high concentration, detrimental to wine quality. The principal spoiler compounds associated with Brettanomyces spp. are vinyl and ethyl-phenols that are responsible for off- odours described as “animal”, “medicinal”, “sweaty leather”, “barnyard”, “spicy” and “clove-like”.

Perceptive interactions and wine typical fruity aroma 

In this study we developed a methodology to prepare aromatic reconstitutions from fractions of a wine organic extract and we assessed these reconstitutions both in wine model solution and in de- aromatized wine.
