Shipwreck champagne passes taste test

Wine lovers in Finland have been enjoying a sip of vintage champagne that was salvaged from a shipwreck after more than 200 years underwater.

Journalists and connoisseurs were invited to a tasting session to uncork some of the 168 bottles recovered form the Baltic Sea in July. The remainder of the find is to be auctioned.
