So, Give It Back to Him

Champagne from 1780s found by divers in shipwreck in Baltic Sea, could belong to Louis XVI

Divers earlier this week discovered about 30 bottles of centuries-old champagne in a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea. It is thought to be the world's oldest drinkable champagne.

The bubbly possibly dates back to the 1780s and is believed to be the top brand Veuve Clicquot.

It has remained perfectly preserved 180 feet deep on the seabed and "tasted fantastic," according to one wine expert.
