I was clearing out a friends cellar and found a couple of bottles of champagne, one was a 1.5 litre Moet & Chandon still sealed but there was no label on the front so can't tell what variety it is (looks very old though), the other bottle was a 70cl Albert Etienne Brut Rose just wondering if there is a way to tell the age of these and are they still safe to drink.
Thanks rep will be added :)

lol, I thought you were going to ask if they were valuable!

Yeah, they'll be fine, you'll soon find out when you pop it, if it's really old the bubbles will start to fade and you won't get much fizz, in which case you can still drink it, it'll just taste pants.

Decent Champs can get for years so just give it a go.

If you tap the bottom on a table you should create some bubbles, the more it creates and the faster they flow up the bottle the newer it will be!

Should be safe to drink..I know this is going to sound stupid but open it and try it you will soon see if its gone off...Wine can cork, spirits last for ages. As far as aging there should be a code on the label that will identify its batch number and you could find it from there. I don't think the Moet is worth anything more that £50 and I am sorry but not familiar with the other name...Good luck with your hunt...My experience Higher Wine Certificate when I ran a Wine Store in Colchester :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Thanks, didn't think they was worth anything just wanted to know if they are still drinkable, in that case. I think I will save the Moet for a special occasion & the other will go down nice at the weekend :)

they'll be fine should last double what they matured for so should be good for 3 to 6 years if stored on it side keeping the cork wet

if they are on their sides and the cork been kept wet so it hasnt shrunk it wont let any air in so it will be fine.

it may go flater faster but thats about it

Ive got some [B]COMMEMORATIVE BEER [/B]from 1986 - but I'm not going to risk that
