WHY SHOULD WE EVER BUY MAGNUM?
LARGE BOTTLES AGE BETTER
Wine ages as air moves in and out of the cork, interacting with the flavor components of a wine. With large format bottles, you’ve got the same surface area for air transfer — that tiny cork — but a much larger volume of wine. The result is that these bottles age at half the speed of their 750 ml counterparts.
FANTASTIC CENTERPIECES AND CRAFT BASES
It’s because of this aging potential that many top-notch wines are bottled in large formats, allowing a more graceful and better aging process. As a result, producers typically bottle a portion of their best blends into large bottles to see their evolution and mark them up accordingly for collectors.
THE BEST OF THE BEST
Due to their cost, most wineries only produce a small number of magnums. These large, expensive bottles are often used to capture an interesting or noteworthy vintage or special single vineyard release.
THEY LOOK IMPRESSIVE
Because these bottles can reach extremely high prices, they’ve earned a reputation for being expensive and “celebration-only” bottles.
Magnums are for anniversaries and reunions, special birthdays, Christmas lunch, New Year’s Eve – the type of event when you have a table full of joyous wine lovers all eager to raise a glass. If you want everyone to receive a consistent expression of that particular wine and make a “wow” statement, choose a magnum.
BETTER TO TRAVEL WITH
They are made with thicker, heavier glass so there is less likelihood of breakage and the better insulation protects from heat and light.
