1841 Veuve Clicquot, the World’s Oldest Champagne

A bottle of the world’s oldest champagne, 1841 Veuve Clicquot sold at an auction in Finland on June 3. A Russian restaurant in Singapore paid €30,000 ($43,350) for a bottle of champagne which was discovered by divers last summer. Buyan Russian Haute Cuisine and Caviar Bar in Duxton Hill also paid another €24,000 ($34,750) for a bottle of 19th-century Jugler.

The restaurant intends to display the bottles, which have yet to be transported to Singapore, as part of its wine museum, which also features an 1821 Chateau-Chalon Vin Jaune. Other rare wines in the restaurant’s $5 million collection are an 1877 Chateau Margaux, 1854 and 1883 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, an 1859 Chateau Mouton Rothschild and a 1907 Heidsieck & Co champagne, which retails at $88,888 a bottle.

Buyan owner Julia Sherstyuk, 35, said: Our restaurant is not just about food; it is about wine and culture as well. It is about educating people, about history and about stories to tell the world. We are always on the lookout for various connections between Singapore and Russia. So, when we discovered that these bottles were headed for the Russian court, of course we were interested.
