Bottle Sizes

Does the size of the bottles make any difference in the quality of the wine? My great uncle used to say that it was best to leave it in the vat until you were ready to use it but on a winery tour the leader said that it was best in 5th size bottles.

Does it make any difference what size bottle you put it in?
My great uncle used to say that it was best to leave in the vat until it was ready to use. But my cousin said that it was best to bottle into fifths and then put it on the shelf.
Anyone have some comments?

It seems to age more rapidly in smaller bottles, but I've not done any scientific studies of the matter. That's just my perception and opinion.
