Shipwreck Champagne Comes to Auction

When salvage diver Peter Lindberg discovered 162 bottles of Champagne that had been tucked away in the hull of a shipwrecked schooner in the cool waters of Finland’s Åland archipelago since the early 18th century, many wondered if the treasure would be drinkable. But, two years after its discovery, experts have cleared at least 79 bottles, and 11 of them will be offered on the auction block on June 8 by French auction house Artcurial.
