Speaking term for a summarizing negative assessment in the context of a wine speech. Such a wine has reached the end of its life cycle and is no longer enjoyable. Other terms are dead, lifeless, "the wine is gone", "wine corpse" or "the wine is at the end". Identical is the French passé. A preliminary stage with just edible condition is called over-aged (superimposed). See regarding the aging process under the keywords aging and bottle aging, as well as regarding the optimal time of consumption under drinking maturity.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
