Designation of a bottle oversize for champagne with the volume of 27 litres or the content of 36 normal bottles. However, the name is not protected by origin, but can be used freely for sparkling wines or wines. Such a bottle size is used, for example, by the champagne house Drappier as a marketing gag. See a list of all bottle names under Bottles and generally under Wine Vessels.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
