A woman smells samples of champagne from one of the 168 bottles salvaged from a 200-year-old shipwreck near the waters of Aland Islands after it was opened in Mariehamn on November 17. The sparkling wine is believed to have been bottled in the late 18th or early 19th century and it could be the oldest champagne in the world.
