Designation for a trigeminal feeling filling the entire mouth area for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine address. This is not a classical taste or smell impression, but a tactile mouth feeling perceived by the mucous membranes. It is triggered by a full-bodied (rich in alcohol and extract), acidic wine and is often accompanied by a refreshing, tangy feeling. Related terms or those that reinforce or supplement the powerful impression are "taut" and "the wine has a draught".
