Due to the larger size, magnums have a slower oxidation process which allows the champagne to age more elegantly. This also allows them to be stored for longer.
Alongside superior taste, magnums provide shock value in presentation. Standard size bottles only hold about six to seven glasses and are perfect for a small toast or intimate setting. When it comes to over the top celebrations, magnums can more adequately serve guests. Plus- what’s more fun than taking a photo with oversized bottles of champagne?
