Taxing wine bottles

Is my bottle of wine still good?

If you buy a bottle of wine, you need to watch the Ullage this is the space between the cork and the wine level in the bottle, under here we describe the different levels of Bordeaux and Bourgne.

The capsule must be in good condition, which is protected the cork against vermin who want to seize it, the cork will make sure that the wine is well preserved, the Capsule was used to be made of lodges, and then it's not a good violation of Tinums.

Base neck

The base neck is the lower part of the neck a good level for any wine, regardless of her age. It's a fine level for older wines, and for wines over 20 years, even very good.

Very top shoulder

This is an acceptable level for 1958 to 1972

Top shoulder

This is a good level for wines over 25 years, but there's a small chance that the wine is oxidated. In oxidation, the wine looks deaf, she also tastes superficial by years of oxidation in the bottle

Upper shoulder

This is normal for wines over 35 years, but in younger years, it looks like the wine has been badly preserved or a problem with a distinct cork. It's a bigger risk of bad taste.

Low shoulder

This isn't a good level if you buy the wine to drink or keep any longer. The level indicates bad custody or a problem with the cork that's had his best hair. The risk that the wine is no longer good is raised here
