Poinçon

Old French measure of liquid or measure of volume for wine and brandy, which is occasionally also equated to a muid. The volumes were very different depending on the region and use. The poinçon (also known as ponchon) was also a type of barrel, although the sources also indicate different volumes ranging from 200 to 300 litres. See also under barrel types and wine vessels.
