Fill level & Label condition
Wines which are subject to margin tax are marked accordingly and we cannot display VAT (Net = Gross || Differenzbesteuerung)
We never use symbol pictures. The picture displayed is the picture of the particular bottle you are going to buy.
All bottles are available immediately and are stored in our temperature-controlled wine cellar.
Bordeaux bottles / fill level:
|hf||high fill||fill level|
|in||into neck||perfect for wines of any age|
|ts||top-shoulder||normal for wines that are 15 years or older|
|hs||high-shoulder||Natural fading, usually completely harmless. Acceptable for wines older than 20 years. Exceptional for wines older than 50 years.|
|ms||mid-shoulder||Mostly a sign of an aging cork, therefore lower estimate. Calculable risk. Not uncommon for 30 to 40 year old wines.|
|lms||lower-mid-shoulder||Risk still acceptable. Lower estimate.|
|ls||low-shoulder||Risky purchase. Only acceptable for exceptionally rare or sought-after wines. Lowest estimate.|
