Travel Spotting: Expensive Shipwrecked Champagne

Written by Tanner

Cheers with a $275k glass of wine!

Ever wonder what the world’s most expensive wine tastes like? Well, if you really want to find out, just take a trip to Russia and pick up a bottle ofΒ  the 1907 Heidsieck Champagne for only $275,000 a pop – what a deal?! Apparently, 2000 bottles were originally shipped out to the Russian Imperial family in 1916 during WWI, but when the German sub shipwrecked in the Gulf of Finland, they never reached their final destination. In 1997, a team of Finish divers discovered the long lost cargo after almost 80 years being chilled to perfection in the Baltic Sea, and recovered about 200 bottles, which are now available for purchase to guests at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow. And I thought Dom Perignon was pricey!Β  image via
