Magnum

Oversize bottles with the volume of 1.5 liters or the content of two normal bottles. A bottle of about this size was created in France in the 17th century. It is considered ideal for a top quality wine, because here the bottle aging takes place more slowly, which has a very positive effect on the quality. There is also a double magnum with the volume of 3 liters (4 bottles of 0.75 liters each), which also as Jeroboam referred to as. Magnum and double magnums are not only available with conventional bottle shapes, but also with bocksbeutel, See also under bottles and wine vessels,
