1907shipwrecked

The most expensive bottle of wine in the world is the “Shipwrecked 1907 Heidsieck & Co. Monopole Champagne” at $275,000 according to Joe Wertz of Style Crave <link>.

“Cases of the bubbly were bound for Czar Nicholas II of Russia, but were lost in 1917 after a German submarine in torpedoed its transport during WWI. In 1998. 2,000 bottles were salvaged from the bottom of the Gulf of Finland and now sell for more than a quarter million dollars.”

Joe also lists nine other rather expensive drops of fermented grape juice. I own some Grange but not a ’51.
