This undated image made available by French Champagne House Veuve Clicquot shows different types of branding of Veuve Clicquot corks, with the branding, bottom second left, which was identified on three of the Baltic 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. Veuve Clicquot confirmed that experts analyzing the branding of the corks "were able to identify with absolute certainty" that at least three of the recovered bottles were Veuve Clicquot. 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. less
