The magnum is the best

Wine today, we have more options than ever before: not just in terms of wine varieties and brands, but also with different bottle sizes. The sizes go all the way up to 15 liters (the equivalent of 20 standard bottles!), and each bottle size has a fun name. You could pop for a Methuselah (6L), a Salmanazar (9L), or a Nebuchadnezzar (15L) ... but by far the most common is the magnum, weighing in at 1.5L (or the equivalent of 2 bottles). And there are no shortage of great wine options available in magnums.
Apart from the wow factor of the size of these bottles, the other advantage is that the wines stored inside these large bottles age slower and potentially develop more complexity and nuances than wines in smaller bottles because of the lower ratio of air to wine than in smaller bottles, decreasing the risk of flaws developing.
