Bot­tle Names

While the stan­dard bot­tle stands at 75cl, wine­mak­ers also bot­tle in larger sizes, which age the wine bet­ter. They are also pro­duced in less quan­ti­ties, thus a mag­num bot­tle of wine or cham­pagne costs more than two stan­dard bot­tles. Wine bot­tles in larger sizes are named af­ter bi­b­li­cal kings. They also get more dif­fi­cult to pro­nounce, cor­re­spond­ingly chal­leng­ing the more ine­bri­ated you be­come. The largest bot­tle is named Mi­das, for the king with the golden touch, at 40 litres.
