Veuve: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea


Centuries ago a shipping vessel crashed off the coast of Finland in the Aland Islands, sinking all of its cargo 40 meters below the ocean. Four years ago, divers discovered the wreck and its valuable cargo: 165 perfectly preserved bottles of Veuve Clicqout. This discovery prompted our favorite champagne company to explore the prospects of aging a special vintage in the same area where these bottles were found. Dubbed the Aland Vault, Veuve recently submerged 300 bottles & 50 magnums in the dark Baltic Sea to test the affects that the different pressure and temperature would have on the aging process. Because of the low salinity and constant temperature that the Sea provides, these aged bottles are expected to offer a new profile on an already iconic taste.
