Diesel

Next to "merde," one of the most difficult terms to explain to people who aren't into wine appreciation. Anyone who's ever been stuck in traffic behind a city bus can't imagine that "diesel" or "bus exhaust" or "petrol" (see below) could be a favorable description, but take one whiff of a fine, well-aged Rhine Riesling, and you'll be converted. And if you can't handle the term, call it "mineral" instead.
