The aggregation of malvidin 3-O-(6-O-p-coumaroyl) glucoside flavylium cation (OeninCoum) in water is reported. Intra and intermolecular interactions of OeninCoum were characterized by UV–vis absorption, 1H NMR and circular dichroism (CD). Theoretical calculations were also performed to describe the intramolecular interactions. At higher temperature (>60 °C) the intermolecular aggregates are disrupted but CD signal attributed to an intramolecular interaction remains. Moreover, the kinetic and thermodynamic data for Oenin and OeninCoum at 50 °C and 25 °C shows that the increase of temperature stabilizes the quinoidal base of this later.
