Aroma profile of Oenococcus oeni strains in different life styles

Abstract

AIM: Three Oenococcus oeni strains previously isolated from spontaneous malolactic fermentation were characterized for their surface properties. Planktonic and sessile cells were investigated for aroma compounds production and the expression of genes involved in citrate and malate metabolism (citE and mleA, respectively), glycoside-hydrolase (dsrO), fructansucrase (levO), rhamnosyl-transferase (wobB), glycosyltransferase (wobO).

METHODS: Bacterial adhesion on polystyrene was evaluated using 96-well plates in MRS and must. Planktonic and sessile cells were numbered by plate count. Biofilm formation was also visualized by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM, Nikon A1R) using hoechst fluorescent dye. Aroma compounds produced by sessile and planktonic cells were determined by solid phase microextraction coupled with gas chromatography (GC/MS SPME). RNA was extracted using using the Tri-reagent method (Sigma-Aldrich) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Real-time analysis was performed using an iCycler IQ realtime PCR Detection System (Bio-Rad). ldhD and gyrA were used as reference genes. Fold changes were determined using the 2-ΔΔCT method.

RESULTS: The strains adhered to polystyrene in presence of MRS and must. In any case all strains preferred the planktonic state. CSLM was used to visualize cells distribution and their aggregation and confirmed that strains were able to form biofilm in must and MRS in a strain specific way. Quantitative and qualitative differences on aromatic compounds production were also detected. Higher alcohols and esters were mainly produced in the planktonic state, while organic acids in the sessile one. A strain specific behaviour was observed also for gene expression.

CONCLUSIONS: Biofilm formation can modulate aroma compounds production and probably the organoleptic characteristics of wine. Gene expression analysis revealed that aggregation state can influence malate and citrate metabolism. Further investigations are necessary to evaluate the interaction between Saccharomyces cerevisiae/non-Saccharomyces strains and O. oeni in biofilm formation in order to modulate wine characteristics.

Weather classification over the Western Cape (February, 1996 – 2000) and viticultural implications in the Stellenbosch wine district

Une étude préliminaire des situations météorologiques journalières a été réalisée pour l’Afrique du Sud et pour les mois de février (période de maturation des raisins dans la Province occidentale du Cap), à l’image de la classification synoptique réalisée aux latitudes tempérées en France (Jones & Davis, 2000), afin d’étudier les relations entre le climat et la viticulture à des latitudes plus basses.

IDENTIFICATION OF NEW RESVERATROL DERIVATIVES FORMED IN RED WINE AND THEIR BIOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Stilbenes are natural bioactive polyphenols produced by grapevine. Recently, we have reviewed the na- tural presence of these compounds in wines [1]. This study showed that the resveratrol and its glycoside, the piceid, are the most abundant stilbenes in wines. Resveratrol is a well-known stilbene with a wide range of biological activities. Due to its specific structure, resveratrol can be oxidized in wines to form various derivatives including oligomers [2]. In this study, we investigate the resveratrol and piceid transformation in wines.

L’étude “terroirs d’Anjou”: un exemple de caractérisation intégrée des terroirs viticoles, utilisable à l’échelle parcellaire

Natural factors of the production (“terroir” and vintage) are known as an important element for identifying wines by their genuine typicité and their authenticity. The program “Terroirs d’Anjou” (1994-1999) aims at bringing the necessary scientific basis for a rational and reasoned exploitation of the terroir.

The influence of different fertiliser applications and canopy management practices on the potassium content and pH of juice and wine of Vitis vinifera L. cvs. Cabernet-Sauvignon and Cabernet franc

In an attempt to reduce the pH of juice and wine, different fertiliser applications and canopy management practices were evaluated in South Africa in a field trial. Fertiliser treatments entailed no, CaSO4, Ca(OH)2, and MgSO4 fertilisation.
