flat (GB)
plat (F)
piatto, pianeggiante (I)

Description (also flaccid, dull, limp, shallow) for a negative taste and smell impression in the context of a wine appeal. The expressionless wine lacks alcohol, acidity and body. Causes can be over aging as well as oxidative processes. Related terms are emaciated, thin, bland, over, hollow and overaged. A positive description for a less alcohol-rich or full-bodied wine, however, is lean.
