How many glasses are there in a bottle of champagne
Who said maths couldn’t be fun? Read on to work out how many glasses of delicious champagne you can serve from a bottle, a magnum, a methuselah and more.
HOW MANY GLASSES IN A BOTTLE?
Well it all depends on the size of the bottle, and the glasses! But the easy answer is six. The standard serving size for a glass of wine, champagne included, is 125ml or 4 fluid ounces.

This means that a standard 750ml (25 fl. oz.) bottle will give you 6 glasses of champagne. Two bottles will provide enough champagne for 12 servings, four bottles enough for 24 and so on and so forth. If you are planning a big party, with 20 bottles you can serve a glass of champagne to 120 guests.
CHAMPAGNE BOTTLES: A SIZE GUIDE
Of course, that’s only part of the story. While the standard 750ml bottle is the most widely-available option, champagne also comes in a range of special formats. The storied cellars of Maison Mumm are home to 8 different sizes of champagne bottle:
– The half-bottle is our smallest format, at 375ml or 12.6 fluid ounces
– Our standard bottle holds 750ml, or 25 fl. oz.
– The magnum is the most popular “large format” in the Mumm range, with its 1.5 liters (50 fl. oz.) providing 12 glasses
– Next up is the Jeroboam, twice the size of a magnum and holding the equivalent of four standard bottles (3 liters, 101 fl. oz.)
– The Methuselah weighs in at 6 liters (203 fl. oz.), enough to pour 48 glasses of champagne
– The Salmanazar holds 9 liters (304 fl. oz, or 12 standard bottles)
– The Balthazar holds 12 liters (405 fl. oz, or 16 bottles)
– And finally, the most spectacular bottle in the Mumm range is the Nebuchadnezzar, containing no fewer than 15 liters. That’s 120 glasses of champagne!
So there you have it: a standard bottle of champagne will provide six servings, but there is a whole array of alternative formats to explore!
