An old-fashioned word for the residue often found in bottles of wine (and inadvertently at the bottom of glasses) that have been produced 'sur lie' (The lies [lees] are the sediments consisting of tartrates, left at the bottom of a wine cask, if it's left unfiltered, or racked from one barrel to another). See 'Sur lie'
