We went out to discover if the legend is true. Does ageing a bottle of wine under the sea really make a difference? The idea was sparked predominantly following a shipwreck discovered in the Baltic sea in 2010 which dated back to 1840, where divers uncovered 168 bottles of champagne from some of the leading champagne houses including Veuve Clicquot. The 46 bottles remaining intact were believed to be so exceptional that one was sold for €30,000 at an auction in Finland. Whether the perceived exceptional quality was due to legend or an educated guess from those with expert wine knowledge, we aim to get to the truth of the matter!
