Magnums of rosé have become a more regular sight in wine shops in recent years. With many marked at under £40, rosé magnums are no longer just for yachts and private beach clubs.
Practically, when it comes to summer garden parties and picnics, the rosé magnum can be more appealing than transporting cases of bottles.
Magnums are, of course, also a statement; a symbol of decadence and a striking centrepiece for any occasion. Summer is the time to kick back with friends, so why not sip your way slowly through a big beautifully chilled rosé magnum?
If you’ve tried any of the wines below in 75cl bottle sizes, you could also see if there’s any difference in taste when the same wine is served in magnum.
