Les Grands Bouteilles

Armand de Brignac has revolutionized the world of luxury large-format Champagne bottles.

From our 1.5L Magnum sizes – which are available for our Brut Gold, Rosé, and Blanc de Blancs cuvées, to our show-stopping 30 liter Brut Gold “Midas,” no other Champagne house has made the same dramatic impact as these massive, all hand-crafted vessels have. Besides our standard-size 750ml bottles, our range includes Magnums (1.5L), Jeroboams (3L), Methuselahs (6L), Nebuchadnezzars (15L) and the unparalleled Midas (30L).

These extremely rare bottles – only a handful of the largest sizes are released annually – are also record-setters. With a volume equivalent to 20 standard bottles, our Rosé Nebuchadnezzar (15L) is the world’s largest known Rosé Champagne bottle.

Our crown jewel, however, is the Brut Gold Midas: at a weight of more than 45kg (100 lbs), it ranks as the largest luxury bottle of Champagne – of any type – ever created, and requires multiple people to lift, carry, or pour. Each bottle holds a volume equal to 40 standard bottles and stands nearly 1.5m (5 ft) tall. While only a few of these bottles are available each year, every sighting generates headlines!
