We’ve sung the praises of the magnum as a result of the wine they maintain oxidizes slower and stays colder longer (should you’re ingesting the wine chilled), and so they’re all-around excellent for a celebration. If you happen to want a refresher, a magnum holds 1.5 liters of wine, which is the same as two commonplace bottles or about eight full glasses (some individuals say 10 glasses, however that, my associates, is one tiny glass of wine). However now, French winemaker Luc Belaire is taking the large-format wine bottle to new heights — actually.
The model simply launched Zeus, a bottle of bubbly that stands at 3.3 ft tall and weighs a whopping 160 kilos. It now holds the title of “World’s Largest Bottle of Bubbly,” which is becoming as a result of it takes three people to hold and pour the behemoth. The 45-liter bottle is the equal of 60 standard-sized bottles, so 240 individuals may take pleasure in a glass of wine from the factor.
Whereas the sheer dimension of this bottle is spectacular in and of itself, the way it was designed is much more attention-grabbing. In accordance with Luc Belaire, the bottle took seven years to make with the assistance of aerospace engineers. It’s constructed out of metal reasonably than glass, which insulates the bottle from fluctuating temperatures and stress and stops the roughly three billion bubbles from escaping. That’s definitely a high-tech marvel for a product that’s been round for millennia.
Even if you wish to purchase a bottle of Zeus, it’s going to be very tough to get your arms on one. The winemaker solely produced two bottles — one holds the model’s Uncommon Rosé, and the opposite is crammed with Luc Belaire Luxe. Earlier than they’re truly launched on the market (costs are but to be revealed), the bottles are embarking on a world tour.
When you won’t have the ability to sip the nectar from a bottle of Zeus, the wines are available in the US and, for the thirsty wine traveler, at Luc Belaire’s Burgundy vineyard.
