World’s Oldest Bottle of Champagne



Divers have found 30 bottles of champagne thought to pre-date the French Revolution on the Baltic seabed. When they opened one, they found the wine – believed to have been made by Clicquot (now Veuve Clicquot) between 1782 and 1788 – was still in good condition.

The bottle – whose shape indicates it was produced in the 18th Century – has now been sent to France for analysis. If confirmed, it would be the oldest drinkable champagne in the world.
