Champagne is offered in various bottle sizes. The standard size is the 0.75 litre bottle. The size of the bottle plays an essential role in the ageing and maturing process of the champagne. The same cuvée usually tastes more harmonious from the magnum bottle than from the standard bottle, and it also matures better afterwards. Even larger formats, on the other hand, no longer offer any advantage, as the wine has not necessarily been fermented in this very bottle for practical reasons.
