At the Couvent des Cordeliers are on display the various bottles used for wine:
Standard bottle of 75 cl
Magnum= 1,5 litres
Jeroboam= 3 litres
Rehoboam= 4,5 litres
Mathusalem= 6 litres
Salmanazar= 9 litres
Baltazar= 12 litres
Nabuchodonosor= 15 litres
Magnums and Jeroboams are found in the shops but I have never seen the larger ones.
The names of most are those of kings of the Middle-East ancient times.
