The letter "e" on the label testifies that it is a calibrated bottle according to the EU standard. This is always indicated in connection with the nominal volume, for example with "e 750 ml" or "0.75 cl e". This designation has been obligatory for all EU member states since 1977. Only the slightest deviations are permitted. See also under Hollow measures.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
