Fine Wine Halves and Magnums

Wine matures more quickly in halves than in standard bottles, and more slowly in magnums and larger formats, a useful tip both for early drinkers and advance planners wanting to maximise the life of their purchases for a distant coming of age or special anniversary. Just as half-bottles add variety to intimate dinners, a magnum makes an impressive statement for a larger party. Divided into two standard decanters, it will also keep both ends of a big table happy.
