A bottle of 110-year-old champagne is being auctioned off this week. The rare French sparkling wine will be sold through an auction, and it is predicted to fetch millions of dollars.

How old the champagne is

As per CNBC, the vintage champagne was produced even before Albert Einstein released and published his milestone general relativity theory. The champagne also came around before the historic Titanic ship sailed on her maiden voyage.

It was revealed that the bottle of champagne is the Imperial Brut Moet & Chandon brand, and it was dated 1911. Two more bottles of the same brand with dates 1914 and 1915 are also part of the auction.

Champagne expert Richard Juhlin tasted more than 13,000 types of wines and with that, he is now a record-holder for the most number of wines tasted in the world. Ahead of the auction, he shared his assessment of the 1911 Moet & Chandon and his review was so positive.

“The taste is exceptional with superb length and intensity. Here, the dark forest aromas and smokiness have been accompanied by a delicious caressing sweetness from dried fruits and Crème brûlée,” he said. “The aromas are deep and forest featured with layers of wet stump, molded autumn leaves and black Vaucluse truffle.”

Juhlin went on to say that the champagne’s mousse was very weak but really nice when being poured. His overall assessment is that the Moet & Chandon is indeed a rare find.

The auction

The said 110-year-old champagne is already in auction at Acker, the world’s largest wine auction center. Along with the 1911 Moet & Chandon wine, some 877 vintage Champagnes are also being auctioned right now. Interested parties can still place their bids via the Acker auction page.

Meanwhile, the wine auction house is expecting to sell more than 900 separate lots of the wine, and collectively, it is expecting to get at least $10 million for the bottles of champagnes. Bidders can choose from rare wines dating back from 1911 to 1943.

“A significant effort was put into vetting this historic Champagne selection and any bottles deemed to have suboptimal color or conditions were removed,” John Kapon, Acker chairman said. “The bottles offered in this sale are truly the cream of this collection.”
