The World’s Most Expensive Champagne


Shipwrecked 1907 Heidsieck.

These hundred year old bottles of Champagne from the Heidsieck vineyard took over eighty years to reach their destination. Shipped to the Russian Imperial family in 1916. A shipwreck off the coast of Finland caused this Champagne to be lost at sea until divers discovered over 200 bottles in 1997. They are now finally being sold to wealthy guests at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow. The wine’s extraordinary tale and incredible age are what makes it the world’s most expensive Champagne.
