At 1.5 litres, the true origins of the Magnum bottle are lost to time. The term is believed to be an abbreviation of Magnum Bonum: Latin for ‘a large good thing.’ It first appears in English in 1788, among the works of Scottish poet Robert Burns.
Historically, larger bottles are preferred when ageing fine wines over a longer period. There is less ullage, allowing the wine to age with more nuance, and for a richer palate to develop.
