New Year Wishes with 1907 Heidsieck Champagne
Finest New Year Wishes with a bottle of bubbly!
This 1907 Heidsieck champagne is going for an eye popping $275,000 price tag. Loaded with 42.5 grams of sugar, wines like the 1907 Heidsieck Monopole were hugely popular outside France, notably in Russia and, of course, the US. Russia's Tsar Nicolas II had appointed Heidsieck official supplier of champagne to his court at the start of the century and some 250,000 bottles were shipped to Russia annually. It took many years to finally reach they're destination. A collection of hundred year old bottles of champagne from the Heidsieck vineyard in Champagne are being enjoyed by wealthy guests at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow. The champagne was originally planned to ship to the Russian Imperial family in 1916. But a shipwreck off the coast of Finland resulted in the champagne being lost at sea. In 1997, divers actually discovered over 200 bottles of the 1907 Heidsieck champagne. So if you ever stay at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow you can actually enjoy a glass of this champagne, remember its long journey and savoir the taste.
