Yesterday's brainoff reminded me that I've been meaning to submit these for ages.

First, a quick correction - a Solomon holds 24 standard bottles, not 33. This is according to both the CVIC & the UMC.
'Melchior' is also correct for this size but 'Solomon' is more commonly used.

And, if it's ok, a couple of additions to round out the subject :
0.25 -- Piccolo -- Holds 187.5 ml or around one glass full. Aslo known as a split, a snipe or a quart.
0.5 -- Demi -- The French word for 'half'.
35 -- Sovereign -- This size is produced exclusively by the Taittinger company.

Thanks, made the additions and alterations. Removed Melchior as sources seem to indicate it is never used for champagne.
