Ullages (Level of Wine or Spirit)

For bottles with defined shoulders the ullage/level is indicated, if applicable, by its relative position in the bottle.

Our interpretations are as follows:


u. - ullage/ullages (levels)

bn. - bottom neck; completely acceptable for any age of wine or spirit

vts. - very top shoulder; completely acceptable for any age of wine or spirit

ts. - top shoulder; usual level for wines or spirits over 15 years old

hs. - high shoulder; typical reduction through the cork, usually no problem

ms. - mid shoulder; usually some deterioration of the cork and therefore some variation


Example: (u. 3hs) means 3 bottles ullaged to high shoulder.

For Burgundy, German and other wines in bottles with sloping necks the ullage is indicated in

centimetres, measured from the base of the cork.

Example: (u. 2x5cm) means 2 bottles ullaged 5 centimetres.


Fully branded cork indicates the producer, vineyard and vintage are legible on the cork.

Branded cork indicates that the cork is branded with either the producer, wine and/or vintage being legible on the cork.

Sotheby’s does not indicate levels under 3 cm in the necks of the bottles inspected.

Parcel is a group of lots of the same type and quantity of wine.

Sotheby’s does not comment on either back labels or importer labels
