Champagne experts have discovered what are believed to be the oldest existing bottles of Heidsieck champagne, salvaged from a shipwreck near the Finnish province of Aaland. Divers stumbled across a cargo of around 150 champagne bottles in a two-masted scho-oner, which had run aground between 1825 and 1830. It is estimated that the bubbly from Veuve Clicquot and now-extinct Juglar could fetch up to $132,000 a bottle.
