Influence de l'état hydrique de la vigne sur le style de vin

Abstract : Water and temperature are primary factors causing climatic variability between wine terroirs. These parameters have a significant impact on grapevine functioning. Plant water consumption depends on the relationships between the soil, plant and atmosphere. The root system distribution, morphology and functioning are among the most important elements determining the water consumption potential of the grapevine. Basic concepts relating to the grape growing region and wine style are discussed. The main method for measuring water status of grapevines is described and the consequences of water stress on grapevine and grape metabolisms. Preliminary results are presented on the relationships between water status and grape ripeness. A programme is proposed for grapevine water management during summer development in France.
