When it comes to Champagne, you are surely familiar with the standard bottle size, as well as the magnum and the jeroboam. But did you know that Champagne bottle sizes can vary from just a few centilitres to several litres?

Here are the different bottles sizes that Champagne producers offer (the first two are rarely commercialised – you are more likely to find them on planes, in restaurants and wine cellars):

  • The quarter: 20cl 
  • The half-bottle, or “fillette”: 37.5cl

The most well-known and best-selling bottles are as follows:

The standard bottle, or “Champenoise”: 75cl 

  • Magnum: 1.5L (2 bottles of Champagne)
  • Jeroboam: 3L (4 bottles of Champagne)

The high-capacity bottles are rarer, and some of them, being of considerable size, are made to order for special events. You will find them by going straight to the producers. They are:

  • Methuselah: 6L (8 bottles of Champagne)
  • Salmanazar: 9L (12 bottles of Champagne)
  • Balthazar: 12L (16 bottles of Champagne)
  • Nebuchadnezzar: 15L (20 bottles of Champagne)
  • Solomon: 18L (24 bottles of Champagne)
  • Sovereign: 26.25L (35 bottles of Champagne)
  • Primat: 27L (36 bottles of Champagne)
  • Melchizedek: 30L (40 bottles of Champagne)
