French term (Engl. colour or dress) for the colour of mostly a red wine (in the narrower sense Burgundy wine) in the context of a wine address. Although this actually only means "colour" in a value-free way, this term stands for a positive expression in terms of colour power, brilliance and intensity. See also under colour, as well as blue, black and white.
