A split.. The smallest bottle size of champagne is called a Quarter holding 18.75cls.
There is a technical name for this unfortunately i have forgotten the answer but do not be fobbed off with the easy way out it is more than just a cage
A party! . It is called a magnum, which is 1500ml of any wine - not necessarily champagne.
To keep the cork in the bottle
A Magnum is 1.5L, a Jeroboam is 3L, a Rehoboam is 4.5L a Methuselah is 6L. They do have bigger sizes but this should work if you are trying to order a large format for a speci…al event.
16 bottles of champagne = 1 Balthazar
Jereboam Supposedly named after Jeroboam II, who was the King of Israel during the year of Rome's founding (753 BC)
It's called a Balthazar and it's equivalent to 16 regular sized bottles.
Nebuchadnezzar is 20L, that's big.

The wire cage is to help hold the cork in place against the high pressure inside the bottle.
