Champagne Shipwrecked 80 years Back Becomes Worlds Most Expensive Champagne at $275,000

When I read about the story of this long lost Champagne bottle making their way to stardom, I was literally amazed. Imagine a bottle of Champagne sinking in the sea because of a shipwreck some eighty years back has found its way back, and what a come back!

This 1907 Heidsieck champagne fetched a $275,000 tag at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow. And there are more than 200 such bottles belonging to the bygone era. It is being said that the bottles were shipped for a Russian Imperial family at the time when it met the fatal accident.

I am sure that had the roman god of Wine seen this, he would have shied away!
