Champagne bottles come in many different sizes, ranging from the classic Champagne bottle (75cl) and the magnum (1.5l) to very large bottles with biblical-sounding names. These include the Jeroboam (3l), the Nebuchadnezzar (15l) and the 30-litre Melchizedec or Midas – the mightiest of them all, standing 1.10m tall and holding the equivalent of 40 standard bottles.
Founded in 1757, Champagne Henri Abelé is one of the oldest Champagne Houses. In 1880 Henri Marie Joseph Louis Abelé (1852-1923) moved the business to the Rue de la Justice in Reims. In 1882, he played a part in the founding of the Syndicat du Commerce des Vins de Champagne (now the Union of Champagne Houses). The House relocated to 50 rue de la Sillery after the bombing of Reims in World War I and was acquired in 2019 by the Centre Vinicole–Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte.The Champagne Houses
