Found the world's oldest champagne

In July 2010, at the bottom of the Baltic Sea near the Aland Islands was found 75 bottles are believed to be the oldest champagne in the world. Experts say that it tastes like a mixture of mushrooms with honey. Part found bottles belong to the French wine house "Veuve Clicquot", and on the other the emblem of Juglar. Apparently this champagne was sent to St. Petersburg for the Russian Imperial Court. It is believed that the price of bottles of wine house "Veuve Clicquot" may amount to about 68 thousand dollars per bottle.

Prior to this, the most seasoned champagne in the world is a sparkling wine company Perrier-Jouet, stored since 1825.
