One of the 168 bottles of champagne salvaged from a 200-year-old shipwreck in the waters off Aland Islands, between Sweden and Finland, which was opened at a sampling in Mariehamn, Finland on Wednesday Nov. 17, 2010. The divers originally said the bottles were believed to be from the 1780s but experts later dated the champagne to the early 19th century and could be the world's oldest drinkable champagne.
