The Year that Changed the Wine World

The Year that Changed the Wine World

“Never A Dull Moment” is the title of a wonderful book about what its author David Hepworth calls “rock’s golden year”. 1971 was indeed an annus mirabilis for music, witnessing the release of landmark albums by David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Yes, The Who and Rod Stewart. For Hepworth, December 31st1970 marked the end of the Sixties – 12 months late, in one sense – and the start of something very different. It was a hinge, a turning pint, a line in the sand.

Beaujolais Nouveau launch disrupted by uncertainties caused by Covid-19

After a number of negociants gained the upper hand at the end of September by announcing purchase prices below €180 /hl for 2020 Beaujolais Nouveau (-10% compared to normal), wine growers fought back and prevented contracts from being registered with the marketing board for less than €200 /hl, the usual going rate. After getting off to a turbulent start, the Nouveau campaign has now settled at a trade price point of €190 /hl in October.

Loss of trans-resveratrol in young red wines

Loss of trans-resveratrol in young red wines

Many wine connoisseurs are well aware of the purported health benefits of wine, particularly in regard to antioxidant activity. A commonly cited piece of evidence is the French Paradox – the observation that certain European countries where it is customary to consume a glass of wine per day display improved cardiovascular health and longevity. One of the predominant antioxidant compounds present in red wine is the stilbene trans-resveratrol. It is classified as a phytoalexin, meaning that it is produced as a defensive compound by plants experiencing stress (e.g. herbivores, drought). High concentrations of trans-resveratrol are typically found in grape skins, particularly in red grapes and grapes experiencing high levels of environmental stress and are extracted from these into the wine through the wine-making process. Indeed, trans-resveratrol has been identified as one of the major reasons for the perceived health benefits of red wine. In human and animal trials, trans-resveratrol has been demonstrated to possess cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic effects in a dose-dependent fashion.
