The 4-mercapto-4-methylpentan-2-one (4MMP) is a key aroma compound in wines, especially in Sauvignon Blanc ones. Its accurate quantification is quite difficult due to its traces levels and its reactivity in wine conferred by the thiol function. In this paper, we proposed a new method for its quantification in wine without any sample preparation, based on(More)
A procedure for the extraction of free amino acids was applied to isolate S-methylmethionine (SMM) from late harvest Petit Manseng grapes. Grapes were destemmed and crushed, and the obtained clarified must was percolated through cation-exchange resins (Dowex 50 WX4-100). The retained compounds were eluted with ammonia solution and the extract was finally(More)
Both 3-mercaptohexan-1-ol (3MH) and 3-mercaptohexyl acetate (3MHA) were largely studied for the last 20 years due to their pleasant olfactory notes conferred to wine. Until now, many analytical methods focused only on the free forms of both 3MH and 3MHA in wine that provided partial information in the wine aroma evolution. Our study proposes new analytical(More)
