body; bodied
The perception of TEXTURE or weight of a wine in the mouth, which is a combination of elements including ALCOHOL, EXTRACT, GLYCEROL, and ACID. A wine with a RICH, COMPLEX, well-ROUNDED, LINGERING flavor is considered full-bodied; one that's watery or lacking in body is called light-bodied or thin; a medium-bodied wine ranks in between. Not all wines strive for a full-bodied characteristic, namely those whose hallmark may be FINESSE, such as CHAMPAGNE. Dessert wines, like rich SAUTERNES, are considered full-bodied partly because the RESIDUAL SUGAR adds weight and texture.
