Possibly the world's oldest champagne is being salvaged

A team of divers has begun to salvage dozens of bottles, of what is thought to be the world's oldest champagne, from a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea.

After an estimated two centuries on the seabed, the vintage is said to be perfectly preserved.

But only a very select few people will ever get to taste it. Wine experts have valued each bottle at tens of thousands of dollars.
