Greek storyteller, Aesop, is quoted saying "good things come in small packages." Not to argue with a famous Greek storyteller, but he couldn't have been talking about magnum bottles when he said it. Then again, they didn't exist when he was alive so he wasn't aware that bigger is better in the wine world. Magnums may look huge compared to regular size bottles but they really aren't. At 1.5 liters, a magnum bottle is the same as two standard 750ml bottles. And there's even more good news - wine actually ages better in a magnum. Even though the bottles are larger and contain more liquid, the cork is roughly the same size as a standard bottle. This means that the same amount of oxygen gets trapped between the wine and the cork. Less oxygen means the wine oxidizes slower, keeping all those flavours and aromas we're thirsty for. This holiday season try one of the amazing magnums we've brought in. Sometimes bigger really is better!
