Priceless bottles of champagne rescued after 168 years.

This would make a very fine scene in a novel, no? After two centuries underwater, 168 bottles of Veuve Clicquot and Juglar champagne were recovered from a shipwreck in the waters between Sweden and Finland. Those who know date the bottles back to the early 19th century. So how does a sip of VERY aged champagne taste? Reportedly, fabulous, with tones of yeast, mushrooms and undertones of honey. Some of the unopened bottles will be sold at auction and are expected to fetch more than $70,000 each. Now that’s cause to pop open some bubbly!
