Moët and Chandon Impérial Brut Champagne NV Magnum

Elegant with notes of ripe pear, just a touch of citrus and lightly toasted brioche. Fine creamy mousse. Made from 50% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay and 40%Pinot Meunier grapes. This bubbly is one of the largest-selling champagnes in the world.  I could sip on this lovely champagne all day.

As we are describing champagne, it is interesting to note that the term “bouquet” refers to the total scent of the wine, “aroma” is the scent of the grapes. The bouquet and the aroma together are referred to as the “nose”.

Champagne bottle sizes (left to right):

Jeroboam: Equals 4 standard bottles or 24 (4 oz.) glasses

Magnum: Equals 2 standard bottles or 12 (4 oz.) glasses

Standard: Equals 6 (4 oz.) glasses

Split:  Equals 1/4 standard bottle or 2 (4 oz.) glasses.

The bottles get even larger than a Jeroboam…a Rehoboam equals six; a Methuselah equals eight; a Salmanazar equals 12; a Balthazar equals 16; and a Nebuchadnezzar equals 20 regular bottles of Champagne.

Many champagne bottle sizes were inspired by Biblical characters. For example:

-Jeroboam: “First King of The Kingdom”
-Methuselah: “Oldest Man”
-Salmanzar: “Assyrian King”
-Balthazar: “One of The Wise Men”
-Nebuchadnezzar: “King of Babylon”
-Solomon: “King Solomon, the wisest of all men, built the Temple in Jerusalem”
-Melchizede: “Name of several priesthoods in different religions including the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints”

Winston Churchill had a champagne bottle size named after him. “The Winston Churchill” bottle was produced by Pol Roger (Churchill’s favorite champagne) and held 20 ounces of champagne, perfect for Churchill’s breakfast consumption.
