Name (also Nabuchodonosor, Nebochadnezar, Nebukadrezar) for an oversized bottle of champagne with a volume of 15 litres or the contents of 20 standard bottles. However, the name is not origin-protected, but can be used freely for sparkling wines or wines. It is derived from Nebuchadnezzar II (605-562 BC). "Nabû-kudurri-ussur" means "God Nabû, protect my eldest son". There was extensive building activity under this king, including in Babylon. He conquered Judah, the southern kingdom of the Jews, in 586 BC. In the process, the capital Jerusalem and the temple built under Solomon (972-932 BC) were completely destroyed (centre picture) and the upper class of the Jews were deported into Babylonian captivity.
