brick red

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.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
