Terroir, climat et sol

Abstract

Le sol et le climat occupent une place prépondérante dans le concept de terroir, pour lequel l’OIV s’apprête à adopter une définition internationale. Les travaux de recherche qui ont été menés depuis une trentaine d’années sur ces thèmes et qui ont été, pour les plus importants, présentés dans les 7 premiers Congrès Internationaux des Terroirs Viticoles ont considérablement modifié les connaissances sur le fonctionnement des terroirs viticoles dans le monde et le comportement des consommateurs avertis par rapport aux vins de terroirs. Ce Congrès pourrait être l’occasion de réfléchir à de nouvelles orientations en matière de recherche sur ces thèmes. Notamment, l’élargissement de l’étude des terroirs à d’autres disciplines pourraient être étudiées, en particulier la microbiologie pour l’étude des sols et les mesures à prendre pour s’adapter au changement climatique dans les zones viticoles traditionnelles.

Monitoring grapevine downy mildew epidemics with SkySat and PlanetScope imagery

Grapevine downy mildew (GDM), caused by the oomycete Plasmopara viticola, is one of the most destructive diseases of Vitis vinifera worldwide. All V. vinifera cultivars are susceptible to P. viticola infection, and epidemics can spread across an entire vineyard within a matter of weeks. Severe outbreaks cause substantial reductions in yield and fruit quality. Tracking GDM spread by manual scouting is time-consuming and unfeasible over large spatial extents.

Pacific Northwest wine regions and climates

This paper presents a review of wine regions in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) of North America. The PNW consists of the states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho and the province of British Columbia.

New oenological criteria for selecting strains of Lachancea thermotolerans for wine technology

The study conducted various fermentations of different grape juices using various strains of Lachancea thermotolerans and one strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Because of the new conditions caused by climate change, wine acidity must be influenced as well as the volatile profile. Non-Saccharomyces yeasts such as L. thermotolerans are real options to mitigate the impact of climate change in wine production.

Volatile compounds of base wines for the production of Lessini Durello sparkling wine

AIM Durello is a sparkling wine produced in the Lessini mountains near Verona. The wine is made from Durella grapes, a native white grape variety with a particularly high acidity. In spite of the small production area (375 ha for only 35 producers), there is a growing interest in this product. However, little is known about the aromatic profiles of these wines. The aim of this work was to characterize the aroma profile of Durella base wines suitable for the production of Lessini Durello sparkling wine. METHODS 14 base wines from Durella grapesfrom different producers were used for this study. Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) and Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) sampling techniques coupled to GC-MS analysis allowed to identify and quantify a total of 62 volatile compounds. RESULTS Durello base wines showed relatively high levels of vitispirane, ß-damascenone, ß-citronellol and esters.

Grape seed flavanols extraction and mechanical-acoustic properties as influenced by maceration time and ethanol content

AIM: Grape flavanols are involved in wine quality markers such as in-mouth sensations and colour stability.
