The overall flavour of a wine, white or red, that has full, rich flavours. “Big” red wines are often tannic. “Big” white wines are generally high in alcohol and glycerin. Sometimes implies clumsiness, the opposite of elegance. Generally positive, but context is essential – (eg: A Bordeaux red wine shouldn’t be as “big” as a California Cabernet Sauvignon).
