Ancient? 1780's? The United States is older than that, by a smidge. You could probably seel the stuff for more than it's weight in gold... and aren't there rules against drinking and diving? Yes there is the R from rules against it and it would sell for up to 50 000 pounds according to the article.. however knowing what ego can do.. I presume that was seriously underestimated

I'm surprise a bottle that old, especially under the sea, kept it's seal and fizz for so long. That must be good stuff!

That's just amazing, considering the oldest on record is 1828 (I think they said?). This is truly "Vintage" Champers!

I had no idea we had the tools to make champagne back then? Must have had a LONG process to create the pressure resistant glass for the champagne..
