Utilisation de données historiques pour caractériser le millésime en cours


Cet article propose la formalisation d’un modèle paramétrique pour représenter l’accumulation des sucres dans les baies de raisin durant la maturation. Le test de ce modèle sur des jeux de données réels a permis de valider l’approche proposée. Une seconde partie est axée sur l’adaptation de la méthode pour permettre la simulation du comportement du millésime en cours dès les premiers relevés de maturité. Ce travail possède de multiples applications dans le domaine de l’aide à la décision. English version: This paper proposes the formalization of a parametrical model in order to represent sugar accumulation in grape berries during ripening. The model was tested on real data and provides results that enable the validation of the proposed approach. The second part is based on the method accommodation to simulate the behavior of the current vintage as soon as the first maturity measurements are available. This work could have several applications in the decision support field.

The role of the landscape as a component of the terroir in Spain (DO Somontano, NE Spain)

The components and methodology for characterization of the terroir in Spain have been described by Gómez-Miguel et al. (2003), Sotés et al. (2003), taking into account the full range of environmental factors (i.e: climate, vegetation, topography, soils, altitude, etc.),

White wine light-strike fault: a comparison between flint and green bottles under the typical supermarket conditions

Consumer preference favors flint-glass wine bottles over the traditional dark-colored, but it is documented that light exposure can cause white wines to produce off-aromas and change in color, and consequently da[1]mage their quality. Aim of the study was to study the white wine shelf life under the typical supermarket conditions, by recording the light and temperature exposure, the colorimetric changes, and the light-strike fault. METHODS: One pilot experiment based on two white wines and eight-time points and one kinetic experiment based on four white wines and seven-time points were designed and realized using a typical supermarket shelf for 32 and 50 days, correspondently. By installing prototype sensors at 32 points of the shelf, the temperature, UV, IR, and Visible light exposure were registered every 10 min. Approximately 600 commercial wines, bottled in flint and colored glass, were used. The colorimetric changes of the wines were registered and the light-strike fault was evaluated.

Wine growing terroirs: management of potential. New issues at stake for AOCs in France

Terroirs represent a heritage that must be studied and managed with appropriate methods; recourse to agronomic and oenological sciences alone is necessary, but is in no way sufficient without the contribution of the humanities.

The impact of delayed grapevine budbreak on lemberger wine sensory compounds under variable weather conditions

Spring freeze events threaten grape production globally. As grape buds emerge from dormancy in spring, freezing temperatures have the potential to damage green tissues, decreasing yield potential and compromising fruit quality by harvest.

Simgi® platform as a tool for the study of wine active compounds in the  gastrointestinal tract

Simgi® platform pursues the need for dynamic in vitro simulation of the human gastrointestinal tract optimized and adapted to food safety and health fields. The platform has confirmed the model’s suitability since its first’s studies with the consistency between the simulated colonic metabolism of wine polyphenols and the metabolic evolution observed with the intake of wine in human intervention studies [1].
