In order to describe wines in the best way possible Bruun Rasmussen applies classification principles which, for the sake of clarity, are displayed via abbreviations.
The table below lists the meaning of the individual abbreviations.
|Dbt||Bottled in DK|
|Owc||Original wooden case|
|1/2||Half bottle (37,5 cl)|
|0,5 l||Half litre (50 cl)|
|Mg||Magnum (150 cl)|
|Dmg||Double magnum (300 cl)|
|Jero||Jeroboam (up to 1978 jeroboams were generally bottled in 4,5 litre bottles rather than 5 litre bottles). Bottles from Champagne and Burgundy only 3 litres.|
|Imp||Imperial (600 cl)|
|Met||Methusalem (600 cl)|
|Sal||Salmanazar (900 cl)|
|Bal||Balthazar (1200 cl)|
|Neb||Nebuchadnezzar (1500 cl)|
|Mel||Melchior (1800 cl)|
Unless otherwise stated, bottles are of a normal size (75 cl). No guarantee is given for the wine's quality or condition.
Having reached a certain age, it is natural for some of the wine to have evaporated from the neck of the bottle.
