About this deal
How big is a Nebuchadnezzar? A Nebuchadnezzar-sized bottle of wine contains 15,000 ml or 15 litres of wine. It is to be expected with fine champagne that there is some variation from bottle to bottle — this is actually a good thing as it signifies artisanship — but when you’ve got multiple of the same bottle open and being passed around, you don’t want small pours of each here and there to amount to something in the glass that’s not quite true to taste. The same goes for temperature and carbonation. If a handful of bottles are open and some initially poured from more than others, the serving temps and effervescence will vary significantly. Magnums offer the opportunity for a bit more control over these factors. 4. Value & Impress
The Sovereign is listed in the OCW as 34 bottles “in theory”, but direct communication with Taittinger, possibly the only producer to use this size, confirms it at 35 bottles.What’s even more fascinating about wine bottle sizes is that there’s a unique name behind each size. So, when you see or hear the name of a wine bottle, you can equate it to the volume of the bottle. There’s also a valid reason for some bottles being smaller or bigger than others. Sourcing from top producers we pride ourselves on the quality, tasteand smoothness of our Champagne.

Named after the most famous Assyrian king Salmanazar III (858-824 BC), who is remembered as a great builder.
Wine Bottle Dimensions Chart
The different wine bottle shapes and sizes started taking shape once it was discovered that cork could act as a sealing agent, which allowed the wines to age or at least not spoil. The surface to air ratio between the wine and the bottom of the cork is called ullage. The amount of ullage can either oxidize the wine, causing it to age prematurely, or develop at a slower pace of maturity. This takes because because the more air the surface of the wine is exposed to, the faster the wine is going to develop.
