yeasty

Description for the smell and taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. In a positive sense, this certifies that the wine has a pleasant yeast note and a fresh, tangy taste, as is deliberately brought about during a yeast sediment storage. A yeast tone is typical for young Riesling wines from the French Alsace and for wines from the Loire region Muscadet. In sparkling wines such as champagne and sparkling wine, a fine yeasty note is naturally the rule or a desired effect. In a negative sense, this can be due to an undesirable second fermentation in the bottle and is then also called "beery". In this regard, see also under wine faults.

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.
