It's that Champagne time of year again to celebrate Christmas, New Year or simply say thank you. A standard Champagne bottle contains 75cl of Champagne giving you approximately 6 to 8 glasses of Champagne depending on your glass or flute size, but maybe you want to go with a bigger bottle as it's a special event. Large Champagne bottles are named after biblical figures and are with filled with Champagne that has been fermented in standard bottles or magnums. Champagne houses tend to choose their Brut Champagne to create their full range of sizes from the smallest 20cl to a 15 Litre bottle. Rosé Champagnes are also available in a bigger bottle but rarely go beyond a magnum. Here's your handy size guide with a comparison as to how much Champagne is in each.
