brick red

tile-red, tuilé, brick red (GB)
rouge-brique, tuilé (F)
rosso mattone (I)
cor de tijolo (PO)

Term (french tuilé = brick) for the orange-red colour of a red wine in the context of a wine address. This is particularly characteristic of Mediterranean wines, such as those from the French Provence. The slightly bleached (burnt) colour has a light brownish shimmer. However, this can also mean that a wine is nearing its peak during bottle aging and should be drunk soon. See also under colour, and blue, black and white
