IS BIGGER BETTER?
A standard bottle contains 750 ml of wine. A magnum contains double (1.5 liters). Attending a larger gathering? Magnums fit the bill. The bottles look magnificent and impressive. A magnum in hand expresses generosity and signals good times to come.
There’s also a more practical reason for the larger bottle format. They age more slowly because of less exposure to the effects of oxygen. The result is longer aging, yielding better taste in maturity. Whether you want to lay a bottle down for the future or prepare for festivities with four or more people, reach for a mag, and enjoy.
