If you are a fan of finer things in life, like expensive Champagne, you might want to see this 100-year-old bottle of Krug Champagne.
On September 25, Sotheby’s New York will be showcasing a rare bottle of Krug from 1915, and the historic auction house has set the starting bid at $15,000. “Krugists,” fans of the Champagne house, are encouraged to bid on this antique bottle, although it’s not the oldest one around — scientists actually discovered a 150-year-old bottle of Champagne in a shipwreck.
The winner of the bid will also receive a two-day trip to tour the Krug Champagne house in Reims, France, with three friends. The tour will be led by Olivier Krug, sixth-generation member of the Krug family. Of course, there will be Champagne tastings — including one of the last four remaining bottles of Private Cuvée 1915.
