The Most Expensive Champagne in the World
Most Expensive Champagne in the World. These hundred year old bottles of Champagne from the Heidsieck vineyard in Champagne 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. Now they’re finally being sold to wealthy guests at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow. Of course, the wine’s extraordinary tale and incredible age are what makes it the world’s most expensive champagne. The most expensive champagnes are more about image than what is in the bottle.
