how long does a bottle of moet champagne last ive had it 20yrs in a dark place on its side and a constant temp

Hi Angela,

A constant temperature is a plus as variations are always damaging so I hope it was below 55deg F so that you have some prospect of pleasure after 20 years. But even so it would be a gamble as I'd only count on the very top vintage Champagnes lasting that long.

Good luck!

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.


I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
