bouteille

bottle (GB)
bottiglia (I)

French term for bottle (derived from the Latin butticula = barrel) and not only for wine, but also for beer or milk. It is a colloquial term without meaning in wine law. In Austria and Germany, this usually means a wine bottle with a volume of 0.75 liters, regardless of the bottle shape. But this differs from region to region, because in southern Germany it is usually the lean one Schlegel bottle meant. The term "bouteille lourde" describes a bottle made of heavy glass (lourde = heavy). See also under bottles and wine vessels,
